Berkshires screening of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
An autism-friendly screening of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will be presented Saturday, November 3rd at 2:00pm, at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Gt. Barrington, MA. Tickets are $10 for the event, which is designed to connect people in the autism community, and includes a Q&A. This will be an encore broadcast of London’s National Theatre “Live in HD” broadcast of Simon Stephens’s adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel, directed by Marianne Elliott.
The play tells the story of Christopher, a fifteen-year-old who stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog, Wellington. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in his book to solve the mystery. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
The Mahaiwe is located at 14 Castle Street in Great Barrington, Mass. Box Office Hours: Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6pm and three hours before show times. For tickets and information, see www.mahaiwe.org or call 413.528.0100.
