Sydney might be a little slow on the uptake here, but we’re fiiiiiiinally scoring a performance of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time. And if you’re unsure, yes you absolutely need to book tickets. This one absolutely killed it when the Melbourne Theatre Company had its season (just quietly, it was a total sell-out), and it was a similar story on the West End.
In the words of our Auckland Editor (who loved the show), it is based on the novel of the same name, and tells the story of Christopher John Francis Boone, who has Asperger’s Syndrome. The performance starts with a dog killed with a garden fork plunged through its body and Christopher standing above it—cue assumptions that he is the killer. Christopher then takes on the role of detective to get to the bottom of the crime.
His search leads him to discover far more than he ever anticipated and, as his world is thrown upside down, the audience is with him every step of the way as he documents the experience in his own unique way.
To nab yourself a ticket, you’ll need to head here.
