The Tony award winner, Marianne Elliott directs this "triumphant" (Sunday Telegraph, United Kingdom) adaptation by the twice Olivier Award-winning playwright, Simon Stephens. Simon Stephens brings Mark Haddon's internationally best-selling novel to an exciting stage play.
It is the story about fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone, who has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at mathematics while not at all apt to everyday life. He has actually never gone out alone beyond the end of his street and he detests being touched.
Added to all this, he also distrusts strangers. However, when Christopher is under suspicion for killing his neighbour's dog, he uses his detective skills to find out who the real culprit is. This takes him on a journey that totally turns his world upside down. This play is an outstanding and captivating stage show. It will have a British and Irish cast and is a "global theatrical phenomenon" that should not be missed!
