National Theatre


Falmouth Academy and the Woods Hole Public Library will present the National Theatre of London’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Friday, October 12th at 7 PM in the Simon Center for the Performing Arts at Falmouth Academy, 7 Highfield Drive, Falmouth.

Captured live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse) has astonished audiences around the world and has received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards®. 

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.

*The broadcast at Falmouth Academy is a recording of the National Theatre show, not a live simulcast.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door (cash or check only). Doors open 30 minutes prior to show time.
