The National Theatre’s multi award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will be staged at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen next summer as part of a major tour of the UK and Ireland.

The Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time received seven Olivier Awards in 2013 including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design.

It also won the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Theatre and has been seen by over 200,000 people during its run in the West End.

The play will be staged at His Majesty’s Theatre for a week from Monday, August 31, 2015 and tickets go on sale to APA Friends today (Monday) and to the general public on Friday (May 2) online at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.

“This is a beautiful and ingenious show, based on an award-winning novel and we’re delighted that it is coming to Aberdeen,” said Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects Ben Torrie.

“HMT is one of the most respected theatres in the country and it is our privilege to bring work of such a high calibre to the city.”

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is directed by Marianne Elliott, who co-directed the National Theatre’s record-breaking production of War Horse which is now in its sixth year in the West End.
