The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is another book I read as a teenager while at school. When it was first adapted for the stage at the National I was really keen to see it, particularly after it got such rave reviews. However I just never seemed to get round to it. It transferred to the West End, opened on Broadway, went on a nationwide tour and yet still I never got round to seeing it. Anyway finally I saw that it was about to close and thought I really should get my arse in gear and see it. So I booked tickets with my friend Rup to see it. I’d vaguely remembered most of the basic story of the play, but there was still some nice surprises in the play of things that I’d forgotten, including who crucially who killed the dog. The play was beautifully staged and I enjoyed it. Really glad that I finally got to see it. Make sure you stay for the end where they explain the maths problem.
