We are very happy to see that the Broadway version of 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' has won five Tony awards at the 69th Annual Edition in light of one of our latest acquisitions, a feature documenatry from Adam Low which uses the highly successful stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel to frame a cinematic exploration of being on the autistic spectrum.
The film will use the story of the play, in which Christopher Boone travels to London to find his mother and solve the mystery of who killed his neighbor’s pet dog, as a spine from which to jump off and explore the journeys of people who are the real life equivalents of the characters in the play. We will meet Dakota, a teenager with autism from the Bronx projects, who travels to Manhattan where he inspires and educates the New York cast, in a similar way to Cian Binchy, who advised the original London cast, and who is now training to be a performer himself at the Central School of Speech and Drama.
It is fantastic to see the stage adaptation receiving the accolades it deserves ahead of films release. For a fill list of awards won please click here.
We will have news on the films official release very soon!
