The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Simon Stephens is adapted from the novel by Mark Haddon. We follow Christopher John Francis Boone, a 15-year-old mathematical genius, as he tries to solve the mysterious death of his neighbor’s dog Wellington. Along with solving this mystery, Christopher strives to find his place in the world; he navigates a neurotypical world with a neurodivergent brain. Christopher experiences intense isolation, and this play takes us along for all the moments of that isolation: happy and sad, easygoing and intense, good and bad.
This play was one of the first of its kind to bring conversations about neurodiversity and the neurodiverse community to the forefront. It explores elements of identity, authenticity, relationships, and acceptance. We see Christopher’s neurodiversity does not hinder him but rather makes him who he is and allows him to thrive.
