THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is adapted by Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon's best-selling book, and directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse, Curious Incident).

Director Marianne Elliott said: "I'm absolutely thrilled that our production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is touring to Beijing and I look forward to sharing with audiences our staging of Mark Haddon's beautiful story of love, family and bravery in the most unlikely of environments."

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME transferred to London's West End, following a sold-out run at the National Theatre's Cottesloe theatre in September 2012. It is the recipient of a record-breaking seven 2013 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design – more Olivier's than any other play in the history of London's West End.

CURIOUS INCIDENT, the longest-running play on Broadway in over a decade, premiered at the Barrymore Theatre in September 2014, winning five Tony Awards including Best Play, six Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Play, five Outer Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding New Broadway Play and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off Broadway Play. CURIOUS INCIDENT was named among the top 10 productions of 2014 by over 20 leading media outlets, including The New York Times, Associated Press, New York Post, Time Out New York, Playbill and Time Magazine.

The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Night-Time

The show tells the story of Christopher John Francis Boone, who is fifteen years old. 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, 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 is designed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Bunny Christie, Tony Award-winning lighting designer Paule Constable and Tony Award-winning video designer Finn Ross. Movement is by Scott Graham and Olivier Award-winning Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton (who also composed music for War Horse) and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.

Mark Haddon's novel THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME was published in 2003 and was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including prizes in the US, Japan, Holland and Italy, as well as the prestigious Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004. The novel has been translated into 44 languages and sold more than 5.5 million copies world-wide.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time's international tour visits the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore, with further international dates to be announced. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time recently completed a North American tour which took in 30 cities across the USA, and a UK and Ireland tour which took in 25 towns and cities.
