Curious Incident logoThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens

November 9 - 18, 2018, Crafton-Preyer Theatre

In this play based on the best-selling 2003 novel, Christopher, a 15-year-old English boy, discovers the neighbor's dog has been murdered and decides to investigate. Christopher is on the autism spectrum and carefully records each fact in a “murder mystery” book, which provides a look inside his intricate mind. What he discovers upturns his world and empowers him to pursue his dreams and face his fears.

This production depicts brief moments of domestic violence. It may not be appropriate for all audiences.

Our 2018-19 season is sponsored by Truity Credit Union. The University Theatre is partially funded by the KU Student Senate Activity Fee.
