The Cu­ri­ous In­ci­dent of the Dog in the

Night-Time pro­duced by the Royal Na­tional The­atre of the UK, will be put on stage at SAIC·Shang­hai Cul­ture Square from May 9 to 20. By Si­mon Stephens and based on the novel of the same name by Mark Had­don, the story con­cerns a mys­tery 15-year-old teenager Christo­pher Boone who in­sist on in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death of a neigh­bor’s dog. Boone has an ex­tra­or­di­nary brain, ex­cep­tional at math but ill-equipped to in­ter­pret ev­ery­day life. He has never ven­tured alone beyond the end of his road. He de­tests be­ing touched and he dis­trusts strangers. But his de­tec­tive work, for­bid­den by his fa­ther, takes him on a fright­en­ing jour­ney that up-turns his world. The play has re­ceived a gen­er­ally warm re­cep­tion, with its cliff-hang­ing plot and the vis­ual ef­fects em­ployed dur­ing the show. Most im­por­tantly, it is a story about love, courage, fam­ily and truth. At some point the au­di­ence may be struck a glim­mer of sad­ness, but it is de­fused by hu­mor in­ter­wo­ven into the plot, which cre­ates a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence of re­lax­ation and ten­sion. Date: May 9 to 20, 2018, 2 pm/7:30 pm

Venue: SAIC·Shang­hai Cul­ture Square
