KU Theatre presents The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens
There will be a Sensory Friendly performance at 2:30pm on Nov. 11. The light and sound cues for the Nov. 11 performance will be softened. All are welcome to attend the Nov. 11 performance or any other performance.
In this play based on the best-selling 2003 novel, Christopher, a 15-year-old English boy, discovers the neighbor’s dog has been murdered and decides to investigate. Christopher is on the autism spectrum and carefully records each fact in a “murder mystery” book, which provides a look inside his intricate mind. What he discovers upturns his world and empowers him to pursue his dreams and face his fears. Harry Parker, a KU alumnus and chair of Texas Christian University’s Department of Theatre, will serve as the guest director, which is made possible by the Ronald A. Willis Visiting Scholar/Artist Fund.
We will provide a safe space in the lobby for anyone who experiences anxiety or stress during the production, as well as a booklet which can prepare you for all loud sounds, light changes, and other effects, both of which will be available for all productions.
Infrared hearing-assistive headsets are available for any of these performances. Audio description for the visually impaired may be requested in advance from KU Audio Reader.
The University Theatre is committed to making the theater experience inclusive to people with a wide range of abilities and experiences.
It will be performed on the Crafton-Preyer Theatre at Murphy Hall. It runs approximately 2 hours. Concessions will be served.
