York Drama is Proud to Present its Fall Play: THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME

October 14-17 at 6:30 p.m.

Outdoor / Tented Performance

Tickets: $12 - Ticket Link

This critically acclaimed play, developed at the National Theatre in London and based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon, has astonished audiences around the world and received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards® including best play on both sides of “the pond”.

The show tells the story of fifteen year old Christopher Boone, a neuro-atypical young man who struggles at times with everyday interactions, but excels at maths and detailed observation. As the audience gathers and the show opens, Christopher stands beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog, which has been speared with a garden fork. It is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. Christopher has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and distrusts strangers, but his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a long and courageous journey that upturns his world.

York Drama presents a season of Courage.

Oscar Wilde once said, "It takes great courage to see the world in all its tainted glory, and still to love it." Learn more about how York Drama hopes to inspire courage in its community this year.

Courage is not born, it's built. It is the foundation which supports community.

This time can cause uncertainty as so many aspects of life continue to challenge us. It can be easy to see all the broken pieces and lose hope, especially when it's not clear how to fix things, how to react, or how long it may take. York Drama invites you to gather the shattered pieces in front of you and find the courage to strive forward, to live each day with love and compassion.

Act with empathy, lift with love, and live with courage.

We love you, Elmhurst!
