The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time boasts a knockout performance and expressive design”The Georgia Straight

“Powerfully dramatic, highly theatrical and sometimes cartoonishly comic, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time builds a feel-good story around an unforgettable central performance.”Vancouver Sun

“Based on the bestselling novel by Mark Haddon, on its surface, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is like any other family drama. But wrapped inside what feels like a children’s mystery book, told from a unique perspective, and combined with some superb performances and technical magic, it feels now; it feels current.”Vancouver Presents

“This is a warm-hearted, generous-spirited, uplifting show – a gift to parents of offspring, both young and adult, on the autistic spectrum. But it’s also a magically, theatrically told story that tells all of us we can do more than we think we can.”Jo Ledingham
