The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time


The Detroit premier of the National Theatre production of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" will play the Fisher Theatre now through May 14.

The Tony Award-winning new play by Simon Stephens is adapted from Mark Haddon's best-selling novel and directed by Tony winner Marianne Elliott.

Fifteen-year old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

Mark Haddon's novel "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" was published in 2003. It was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including prizes in the US, Japan, Holland and Italy as well as the Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004, and has been translated into 44 languages.

Ticket prices start at $35 and are now on sale at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 800-982-2787, and online at http://www.broadwayindetroit.com or http://www.ticketmaster.com, and at the Fisher Theatre box office. Tickets for the open captioned performance on May 7 may be purchased in person at the Fisher Theatre box office or by phone at 313-872-1000.
