The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

Friday, March 4, 2022 - 8:00pm to Sunday, March 6, 2022 - 8:00pm
Second Stage

Presented by: Department of Performance, Play & Design

Barnstorm Theater presents The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, written by Olivier, and Tony award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, and based on the novel of the same name by Mark Haddon. 

Premiering in London in 2012, this play follows the story of Christopher as he investigates the murder of a dog named Wellington. In doing so, he discovers and travels far more than he anticipated, upending his life but finding the strength to tackle a world that is hostile to him. 

Directed by Theater Arts M.A. candidate Joel Moore, this production aims to incorporate the tenets of Neurodivergent Theatre to create a more accessible production to the neurodivergent and disabled community this show depicts. 

Notice: this production contains use of strobe lights, mature content, domestic violence and ableism.
