"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" has been picking up awards all over the place, including 'Best New Play' at the 2013 Olivier Awards.

It follows the story of 15-year-old Christopher, as he stands beside the body of Mrs Shears' dead dog. And the poor dod did not die peacefully -- he was speared through with a garden fork! Christopher straight away falls under suspicion, so he decides to solve the crime himself.

The only problem is... Christopher is not a normal child. He has a great brain, but he's ill-equipped for everyday life. He has never gone beyond the end of his road, and he's distrustful of strangers and hates being touched.

So his detective work takes him on a scary journey that upturns his world.
