The National Theatre has announced that its acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will return to the West End in November for a limited season.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time begins previews at the Piccadilly Theatre on 29 November, with an opening night on 11 December.

Adapted by Simon Stephens from the novel by Mark Haddon, and directed by Marianne Elliott, the production premiered at the National in 2012, transferring to the West End in 2013 and Broadway in 2014. It won 7 Olivier Awards and 5 Tony Awards.

Simon Stephens said: “I am stunned and inspired by the return of Curious Incident to the West End. It is a story that means the world to me. Mark Haddon's exquisite imagination twisted into shape and infused with life by Marianne Elliott and her incredible team. After travelling the country and seeing the world Christopher Boone is coming back home. I’m mainly thrilled because I get to see it again.”

Tickets for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Piccadilly Theatre go on sale to the general public on Friday (21 September) at 9.30am. Casting is still to be announced.
