Lowry return for Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will bring a touch of nocturnal mystery to Salford’s Lowry art centre between Saturday, 21 January and Saturday, 4 February.

The winner of seven Olivier Awards, the play follows the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone, who find himself under suspicion of killing a dog named Wellington.

It is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered the dog.

He has an extraordinary brain, and 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 production stars Wilmslow and Manchester educated David Michaels playing Christopher Boone’s father Ed and Stockport-based Bruce McGregor as Reverend Peters.

It was adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling book by Stockport-born Simon Stephens. It is directed by Manchester-born Marianne Elliott and Manchester-educated Associate Director Elle While.
