The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time in HD at The Ridgefield Playhouse on June 15

Captured live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse) has astonished audiences around the world and has received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards. See The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in HD on the big screen at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, June 15th at 7pm, part of the Benchmark Classical Series and the Ridgefield Magazine Broadway & Cabaret Series, with support from The Ridgefield Press and Whistle Stop Bakery and underwritten by Lori and John Berisford, Jeanne Cook, Liz and Steven Goldstone, & Sabina and Walter Slavin.  The Sydney Morning Herald states, “Curious Incident is an inspired achievement, the stage equivalent of solving a Rubik's Cube in record time. A big-hearted show that tackles the puzzle of the human mind with uncanny deftness, this is a world-class theatre event, not to be missed.”

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
