CCM continues its new CCMONSTAGE Play Series with The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, playing Oct. 17-20 in Cohen Family Studio Theater. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play, the production is based on the novel by Mark Haddon and adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens.

The story focuses on 15-year-old Christopher and how he uses his extraordinary brain to navigate everyday life. He is exceptional at mathematics, but has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road. He detests being touched and he distrusts strangers, overwhelmed by sensory overload.

When Christopher finds his neighbor’s dead dog, he becomes determined to solve the mystery and find the murderer. His detective work takes him on a thrilling journey through London that overturns his entire world.

“Christopher is a hero on a hero’s journey,” says CCM Acting Professor Richard E. Hess, director of the play. “He teaches us about courage, about resilience, about curiosity and about hope. This play is a revelation, a magical journey to the heart.”

The 2019-20 CCMONSTAGE Play Series presents The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Oct. 17-20, 2019, at Cohen Family Studio Theater. Tickets are on sale now through the CCM Box Office; student discounts are available.
