Mark Haddon’s book became popular back in 2003 as a mystery story for young people. The book went on to win the Whitbread Book Award for Best Novel and Book of the Year along with the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize. The stage adaptation by Simon Stephens received its world premiere at the National Theatre in London in August 2012 where it was directed by Marianne Elliott and went on to win wide critical and popular acclaim.
Christopher, a fifteen year old boy discovers the body of Mrs Shears’ dead dog, a couple of minutes after midnight. He becomes a suspect in the crime and begins to record each fact of the case in order to help him solve the curious mystery. Whilst Christopher struggles to find his way in life, he is blessed with an exceptional brain for statistics and figures, and as he begins on his detective work he enters into a frightening journey that turns the world as he knows it on its head.
The play features a host of acting talent, from Mike Noble as Christopher and Gay Soper. Featuring an original soundtrack by Adrian Sutton and stunning design by Bunny Christie, this was one of the Southbank venue’s biggest hits of 2012.
