The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

When: November 16 – 17, 7:30 p.m.
            November 17, 2 p.m.
Where: The Erica Starr Theatre

Who killed the neighbor’s dog? Was it you? Did you kill Wellington? That’s the question young Christopher asks in this murder mystery. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a stage adaption by Simon Stephens of Mark Haddon's 2003 mystery novel is presented by SHSU’s Dept of Theatre and Musical Theatre. Like the novel, the play follows the adventures of a boy named Christopher trying to figure out who killed his neighbor's dog. It’s a story about difference, about being an outsider, about seeing the world in a surprising and revealing way.
