National Theatre Live the best of British theatre broadcast live to cinemas worldwide.
Mark Haddon's celebrated, multi-award-winning novel is beautifully and imaginatively adapted into a stage play for the first time in a stunning production from the director of the acclaimed theater production of War Horse
Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog, Wellington. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in his book to solve the mystery. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths but 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.
Mark Haddon's novel was Whitbread Book of the Year in 2003, and has now sold over 2 million copies around the world. Marianne Elliott co-directed the globally successful stage production of War Horse for the National, for which she won a Tony Award in 2011. Simon Stephens, twice Best Foreign Playwright of the Year, is the author of many original plays and adaptations, including Harper Regan and On the Shore of the Wide World, both directed by Marianne Elliott at the National Theatre. (Approximately 150 minutes including a 20 minute intermission / Cast: Matthew Barker, Niamh Cusack, Sophie Duval, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty, Paul Ritter, Nick Sidi, Una Stubbs, Luke Treadaway, Nicola Walker, Howard Ward)
