Australian Premiere presented by MTC and Arts Centre MelbourneFifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths, while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.

But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes Christopher on a frightening journey that upturns his world.Direct from the UK, this acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the winner of five Tony Awards and seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play for both. Adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s international best-selling novel, this phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle is ingeniously brought to life by award-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse).Featuring remarkable, immersive staging and the full UK cast, this Australian premiere presented by MTC and Arts Centre Melbourne is a global theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
