The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time for University of  Illinois Theatre at Krannert Center.  

Krannert Facebook Event


Based on Mark Haddon’s prizewinning 2003 novel, the play presents a young man’s search for answers—to his favorite math problems, about what it means to be different, to the question of who murdered the neighbor’s dog. A play-within-a-play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time explores the bonds between parent and child, and what it means to accept shortcomings in those we love.
