The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time
Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, London, W1D6AR
Approx. capacity: 889
The Gielgud Theatre is a West End theatre, located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the City of Westminster, London, at the corner of Rupert Street. The Gielgud is owned by the Delfont Mackintosh group and seats just under 900 people on three levels. It was designed by WGR Sprague in a neo-classical style and opened in 1907 as the Hicks Theatre, named after actor-manager and playwright Seymour Hicks. American impresario Charles Frohman took over in 1909 and renamed it the Globe, reopening the theatre with a drama by Winston Churchill's mother, Lady Randolph Churchill. It was taken over by Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group in the 1980s and refurbished in 1987, it played host to several Ayckbourn premieres and acquired a famous theatre cat, Beerbohm, who on his death in 1995 received a front-page obituary in 'The Stage'. To avoid confusion with Sam Wanamaker's Bankside Shakespeare's Globe project, the theatre's name was changed in honour of the great thespian knight in 1992, and in 2006 Cameron Mackintosh's Delfont Mackintosh Group took ownership and embarked on a further round of refurbishments to both the facade and the interior, which were completed in 2008.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME
Booking Period 24 June 2014 - 14 February 2015
The National Theatre's highly acclaimed production based on Mark Haddon's award-winning novel
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.
Curious Incident, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, was acclaimed by critics and audiences alike during its sell-out run at the National's Cottesloe Theatre and set a new record with its NT Live broadcast to worldwide cinemas, being seen by over 40,000 people in the UK alone.
