The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Photos & Video
In 2012 audiences headed to the Cottesloe National Theatre to witness the stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel The Curious Incident Of The Dark In The Night Time with Luke Treadaway in the lead role. Since then that production has become the latest in a long-line of National Theatre shows to get the West End treatment, following in the footsteps of hits like War Horse (which also featured Treadaway early in its run), which transferred to the New London Theatre.
Following its run at the Apollo Theatre, the show now lands at the Gielgud Theatrewith an array of talented performers taking on some challenging roles. Mike Noble takes on the role of Christopher, replacing the Olivier Award-winning Luke Treadaway, and he works under the direction of Marianne Elliot.
The story focuses on the mentioned character of Christopher, a teenager with behavioural problems who has discovered the dead body of Mrs Shears’ dog. He decides he must solve the mystery of the dog’s death and in doing so not only will he ease the curiosity bubbling up from the crime, he will also exonerate himself. After all, it was Christopher himself that was found next to the crime scene in the first place.
The story was originally published as a 2003 novel by Mark Haddon and it won many awards upon its release. Not only has it spawned the stage adaptation it has also sparked interest in a movie version as well, though as of writing only a director in Steve Kloves has been announced. The stage version, however, has won praise and enough attention to lead to this West End transfer in addition to a screening on cinema screens as part of National Theatre Live.
And its continued success is guaranteed with the return of its impressive cast and director, with Noble appearing in various movies in recent years following his recent graduation from drama school. Such roles include appearances in the recent movie World War Z and 2014’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time opens at the Gielgud Theatre on Tuesday 8th July 2014 (with previews from Tuesday 24th June 2014).
