“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” at Good Luck Macbeth
We are all extraordinary and we are all vulnerable, this is the story of an extraordinary young man in search of life’s truths.
We have come to expect complex and deep productions from Good Luck Macbeth, and “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” does not disappoint.
“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” follows Christopher Boone as he discovers his place in this world and searches for the truth of who he is to the people around him. Christopher is challenged with a learning disability, although his condition isn’t named, it has many of the hallmarks of Asperger’s syndrome. He cannot tolerate being touched and animals are very special to him at the same time humans confuse him.
Christopher excels with numbers and remembers the details of his surroundings even though he needs to take a remedial class on life activities. His teacher encourages him to write a detective novel as he investigates the death of the neighbor’s dog, with unexpected consequences.
Christopher is played extraordinarily by Luke Allen. Luke is truly masterful with this role and offers the audience a glimpse into the mind of a brilliant but challenged young man who feels like an outsider with everyone.
This production excels on all levels, with a cast of very powerful actors and a crew that brings the stage to life.
“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is deeply complex two acts written by Simon Stephens and Based on the Best-Selling Novel by Mark Haddon.
