"Lit up by Luke Treadaway's vivid central performance…mixing pedantic defiance with gut-churning vulnerability." - Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

"Riveting, emotional, intensely theatrical…nothing short of a triumph." - David Benedict, Variety

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs. Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon and adapted by Simon Stephens. Recipient of seven Oliver and five Tony Awards. DCP digital. (Description courtesy of NT Live)
