Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon and adapted by Simon Stephens, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to select international cinemas in 2018.

Captured live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion.

But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
