A new touring version of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is to embark on a UK tour of schools.

Mark Haddon's best-selling novel about Christopher Boone was adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, opening originally at the National Theatre in 2012 and winning seven Olivier Awards. The show transferred to the West End in March 2013 and then ran until June 2017.

The new touring production will be 90 minutes long and will tour to 60 schools across the UK in September. The performance will be followed by a Q&A session for students with the company. The piece will be performed in the round.

The production is designed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Bunny Christie and Tony Award-winning lighting designer Paule Constable. Movement is by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph. The Associate Director is Anna Marsland. Casting to be announced.
