'Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time'

Henfield Theatre Company’s next production is the critically acclaimed 'Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time'.

The play, based on the novel by Mark Haddon and adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens, tells the story of Christopher Boone (played by Ven Malyon, who is himself autistic), a 15 year old mathematical genius who has never explored the world outside of his home or school without his parents. One night he discovers that his neighbour’s dog has been murdered with a garden fork and decides to investigate.

The play is seen through eyes of Christopher, who the audience quickly learn is neurodivergent... however this story is not about ‘labels’, but rather about difference. It tackles themes such as identity, family, adolescence, betrayal and death

Performances are at the Henfield Hall, on Saturday 13th July and Sunday 14th July, at 14:00 and 19:00 each day. The staging will be in the round, with raised seating. Tickets, priced at £12, are on sale via: and at Stevens Estate Agents in Henfield High Street. This production is kindly sponsored by Hawthorn Veterinary Surgeries.
