The play follows fifteen-year-old Christopher, who is 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.
Staged in a box-like set, the play uses projections, music, sound effects and choreography to illuminate Christopher’s whirling thoughts. Tony-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse and Curious) presents a series of fast-paced scenes in which Christopher’s point of view is reflected through interaction with his parents and teacher, plus various neighbors and authority figures portrayed by an ensemble cast.
“It’s about all of us encountering things that we find overwhelming and confusing, and feeling that fear, but driving through anyway,” Elliot said. You’ll be dazzled by the journey into Christopher’s world—including a surprise post-curtain call scene that’s not to be missed. Get ready for a uniquely exciting theatrical experience.
Hailed as “One of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times, this “dazzling” (Associated Press) new play by Simon Stephens is adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel by the same name.
