A classic children’s book adapted into an award winning theatrical version is coming to Milton Keynes Theatre next week.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which has won five Tony awards and seven Olivier awards, visits Milton Keynes for the first time from November 2 to 7.

Fifteen year old Christopher has an extraordinary brain - while he is exceptional at maths he struggles to interpret the business end of everyday life.

When he falls under suspicion of killing his neighbour’s dog it takes him on a journey that upturns his world and propels him into some terrifying new experiences.

But Christopher is made of stronger stuff than anyone might initially have expected.

Based on the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon, adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, this stunning National Theatre production makes a much-anticipated visit to Milton Keynes Theatre next month.

This production, with its unique and innovative staging draws the audience into Christopher’s mysterious world and offers a remarkable insight into what it means to be ‘different’.

The set is designed by Bunny Christie with movement by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly.
