Adapted by Simon Stephens

Show Description:

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has a mystery to solve. Someone has killed the next-door neighbor’s dog with a garden fork and Christopher is a suspect. Determined to discover who killed Wellington, and going against his father’s wishes, Christopher begins an investigation into the dog’s murder, asking questions, and recording his findings in a book. Though he has never previously ventured alone beyond the end of his street, Christopher’s detective work ends up taking him on a frightening journey that tears apart his once-familiar world.

Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel offers a richly theatrical exploration of this touching and bleakly humorous story.
