Fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, rejoice! The award-winning play is back yet again. As for those who have not yet seen it, grab the chance with both hands. Based on the best-selling book by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, this touching and oh so clever tale of mathematical wizardry and investigative intrigue has received critical acclaim during each of its runs.

The Curious Incident premiered at the National Theatre's Cottosloe (since renamed the Dorfman) Theatre in 2012 before transferring to the West End's Apollo Theatre the following year. It went on to enjoy a run at the Gielgud Theatre from 2014 until 2017. The production scooped up 7 Olivier Olivier Awards including Best New Play.

Young Christopher Boone is our protagonist. The play follows his relationship with school life and with his parents, both of which are impacted by his unspecified autism spectrum disorder. When Christopher discovers the strange death of his neighbour's dog, he applies himself to solving the mystery.

Writer Simon Stephens is an Artistic Associate at the Lyric Hammersmith as has tutored on the Royal Court's Young Writers' Programme for many years. His extensive catalogue of plays include Herons, Pornography and Sea Wall.

Marianne Elliott is the award-decorated co-founder of the Royal Exchange theatre in Manchester and co-director of the acclaimed War Horse.

Casting is yet to be announced.

The eloquent and singular The Curious Incident will play for a limited run at Piccadilly theatre until February 2019.
