Theatre Trip – Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is an acclaimed West-End hit that has broken box office records. On Tuesday night, Theatre Studies students were fortunate enough to see this award-winning show by the National Theatre as it toured from London to the Lowry Theatre, Manchester. As a set text on the A Level examination, the students were keen to see exactly how this celebrated story would translate to the stage. They were not disappointed, with many agreeing that this was the best play they have ever seen.

Year 12 Student, Becca Heyes said:

“The staging for this production was phenomenal! The set, lights and sound were incredible. As an audience we felt transported into Christopher’s mind, learning how to see the world from his point of view. The actors were fully committed to their roles delivering powerful performances and kept an impressive pace throughout. Although it seems that this play contains a serious subject matter, the comedic elements led to a heart-warming production. I would give this show 10/10 and would recommend to anyone to go and see this whilst it is still on in Manchester.”
