THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIMEwill tour

Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth from June 2018

Tickets on Sale Friday 19 January at 4pm

The National Theatre of Great Britain’s Olivier and Tony Award®-winning production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME will tour Australia for the first time from June 2018, following its acclaimed sell-out debut season in Melbourne. The play will be performed in Brisbane from 12 June, Canberra from 27 June, Sydney from 4 July, Adelaide from 31 July and Perth from 8 August, by an all-British and Irish cast.

The show tells the story of fifteen-year-old Christopher John Francis Boone He stands besides Mrs Shears’ dead dog, which has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion.  He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who killed Wellington.  He has an extraordinary brain, is exceptional at maths, while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.  He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and distrusts strangers.  But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

The all-British and Irish company for this international tour is Joshua Jenkins (Christopher), who played the role in the first UK tour, Julie Hale (Siobhan), Stuart Laing (Ed), Emma Beattie (Judy), Bruce McGregor (Reverend Peters), Amanda Posener (Mrs Shears), Oliver Boot (Mr Shears), Danielle Kassarate (Punk Girl), Debra Michaels (Mrs Alexander), Matt Wilman (Mr Thompson) with Kaffe Keating playing Christopher at certain performances.  The understudies are Kieran Garland, Emma Keele, Joe Rising and Danielle Young.
