THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME The rehearsals for the new production of the NTNG’s Youth Stage have begun > (11/09/2018)

The rehearsals for the new production of the NTNG’s Youth Stage, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” by Simon Stephens, translated by Margarita Dalamagka-Kalogirou and directed by Eleana Tsichli, have begun. The theatrical adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel of the same name will be staged at the Lazaristes Monastery - Sokratis Karantinos Stage and will premiere on November 10, 2018.
Simon Stephens, one of the most important authors of European dramaturgy, managed to adapt a deeply humane and moving novel for the stage and to turn it into one of the biggest successes of the English theatre in recent years.
The story about the boy, who knows so much about mathematics, maps, astronomy and so little about people, captivates the viewers. His quest, his different viewpoint and his determination to find out the truth, thrills the audience until the very last minute of the performance.
Director’s Note
Christopher John Francis Boone is a talented and skilled boy…
Christopher John Francis Boone knows the capitals of all the countries, all around the world…
Christopher John Francis Boone is a whiz at maths, he knows all the prime numbers up to 7,507…
Christopher John Francis Boone loves detective novels…
And the story begins exactly like a detective novel, when little Christopher, this special boy, tries to investigate the mysterious death of his neighbour’s dog. Passionate about solving the mystery, he faces various unexpected secrets and slowly becomes a protagonist in a story that will change not only his life... but also the lives of everyone around him.

P.S.: Let us point out, that Christopher John Francis Boone is a lonely boy, he doesn’t feel accepted by his peers, he can’t understand people’s feelings at all, he doesn’t understand the rules of behaviour... he doesn’t understand metaphor in speech at all, nor does he grasp jokes and irony... he can’t lie... he can’t bear to be touched at all... and he can’t always correctly say what is hidden in a box of Smarties... However, Christopher has many more abilities than all of us, the others…
