From its home at the Black Box Theater in downtown Las Cruces, No Strings Theatre Company will open the curtain on their production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” on Friday, Jan. 25
The play, adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s novel of the same name, follows 15-year-old Christopher, a boy with an extraordinary brain, exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards and five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Play, this thrilling production has been seen by more than 3 million people worldwide.
Haddon’s novel 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.
