The Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night Time 

Last night my ‘squad’ and I went to watch a play in the west end as you might of guessed it was called A Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night Time. I’m imagining you’ve heard of it? If not it’s a national theatre production about a young boy aged 15 who has autism. He discovers his neighbours dog has been murdered and decides to investigate finding more than he bargained for on the way.

First of all, the acting was astounding. The young boy was played by an actor with true talent he amazed me. The rest of the cast except the father and teacher swap about and become different people depending on the scene. However they also become the objects such as a cash machine and it was incredible.

The staging was impressive. I can’t really explain it but they use a grid printed on four walls and reflect things onto it and scenery would appear out the walls! My favourite scene for staging is the train stations – it was beautifully presented and acted.

Overall I found it really interesting and exciting but the ending is quite anticlimactic. You are expecting another  murder or something but it doesn’t end that way which was a bit disappointing.I would definitely say go see it as it’s heart wrenching and emotionally stunning.

Here is a picture of us in china town after our Chinese (weren’t seeing that coming were you?!) I’ve been informed I’m the mum of the group after I had to complain on my friends behalf so I’m taking it in my stride!

Much love,
