“A beautiful, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.” - Evening Standard
The National Theatre's Olivier and Tony Award® -winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns with a new 10th Anniversary UK and Ireland tour, beginning at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre this November.
Director Marianne Elliott's ‘life-affirming and unmissable’ (Time) smash-hit production brings Mark Haddon's best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at math, while everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world.
National Theatre Live brings the best of British theatre to cinema screens across the UK and around the world. With state-of-the-art filming techniques, tailored to every play, they showcase each performance as it happens, in all its glory. From close-ups that capture every flicker of emotion, to sweeping wide shots of the stage.
NT Live films their plays in front of a live theatre audience, but optimises everything for the big screen so it’s the next best thing to being there. The actors on stage deliver their performances as they normally would any other night. But to make sure audiences watching in cinema have the best seat in the house, they tailor the position of their cameras to capture each production and work closely with technical teams to make sure every element on stage such as lighting, hair and make-up look fantastic on the big screen.
