The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
By Mark Haddon, Adapted by Simon Stephens
May 24, 2014 through July 14, 2014
Saturday, May 24th at 2pm & 7pm, Sunday, May 25th at 2pm & 7pm. Sunday, July 13th at 2pm & 7pm.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’. Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play.

Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

A Small Family Business
A Small Family Business
by Alan Ayckbourn
June 28, 2014 through June 29, 2014
Saturday, June 28 at 2pm & 7pm, Sunday June 29th at 2pm.

Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.

A riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval). A Small Family Business returns to the National Theatre for the first time since its celebrated premiere in 1987, when it won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play.
