The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Curious Incident Logo
Since receiving the 2013 Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has gone from strength to strength at the Gielgud Theatre London. Adapted from Mark Haddon's award-winning novel of the same name, the production follows young Christopher Boone, who discovers the body of his neighbour's dog one evening. Christopher's discovery leads him on a heart-wrenching journey as he tries to solve the mystery and learn a little bit about himself on the way.

Following a sell-out season at the National Theatre and the Apollo Theatre, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has since enjoyed a successful transfer to the Gielgud Theatre in 2014, continuing to entertain audiences throughout the years.

Originally known first as the Hicks Theatre, then the Globe Theatre, the theatre became the Gielgud Theatre in 1997 in honour of the actor John Gielgud, who performed at the theatre throughout his career.

The theatre has always been a considerable success among its West End counterparts and opened in 1906 with the hit musical The Beauty of Bath. The theatre then went on to house A Waltz Dream (1908) which was equally successful.

The Gielgud is generally characterised by shorter to medium runs of well written plays and has housed works from many success playwrights such as George Bernard Shaw’s Candida (1937) Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest (1939) and many Alan Ayckbourn premiers.

To date the longest running show at the theatre was a production of Daisy Pulls It Off which ran for almost 4 years from 1987. In more recent years the theatre has housed Tell me on a Sunday (2003), One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest (2004), Avenue Q (2009) Yes, Prime Minister! (2010) and The Ladykillers (2011.) The theatre also housed a production of Chariots of Fire in 2012 which coincided with the London Olympics. Dame Helen Mirren headed up a sold out production of The Audience in early 2013, which was followed by a revival of Noël Coward’s Private Lives starring Anna Chancellor.

A brand new stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train made its world debut at the Gielgud Theatre in November 2013.  Following that, Broadway transfer Blithe Spirit, starring Angela Lansbury, ran at the theatre from March 2014.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time resumed its West End run at the Gielgud Theatre from June 2014 following its early closure at the neighbouring Apollo Theatre. The show is still running at the venue to this day.
