REVIEW: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at MK Theatre

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

From Tuesday 3rd to Saturday 7th November 2015, the highly acclaimed National Theatre production, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, is being performed at Milton Keynes Theatre. Having been performed in the West End and on the proud receiving end of seven Olivier Awards, the ingenious production is currently on its first nationwide tour.

Based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel, the show - adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliot – had some absolutely amazing reactions from the audience. From the moment the boy appears on stage with a dead dog at his feet, the audience knew they were in for a fantastic performance.

Joshua Jenkins in the title role as Christopher, was very believable and the audience were so engrossed in his performance. With very little props and set, it was all centred on Christopher who is autistic, how he sees the world and his experiences, leaving most of the other details, such as the setting, to the audience’s imagination. It`s a very physical drama with amazing lighting effects to tell the story. The play is partly narrated so that we are seeing the world through the eyes of Christopher which brings with it great humour amid the intensity of the drama.

Some tickets still available from the box office. This is a play you don`t want to miss!
