The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

March 29 - April 14, 2019


St. Joseph, MI – February 28, 2019 – The Twin City Players announces the award-winning drama The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a play by Simon Stephens, based on the novel by Mark Haddon.

Amateur detective Christopher is under suspicion for the mysterious death of his neighbor’s dog. He records each fact in a book he is writing as he attempts to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at math, but he is ill equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road; he detests being touched and distrusts strangers. But Christopher's detective work takes him on a frightening adventure that turns his world upside-down.
