The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time tells the story of Chris, a teenager who seeks to solve the mystery of the murder of a neighborhood dog, and along the way embarks upon a journey of discovery, love and acceptance. The play was adapted from the book written by Mark Haddon in 2003. Interestingly, was the book was originally released simultaneously in adult and children’s editions, making me curious which iteration the stage play leans towards. Ann Arbor Civic Theatre, the organization bringing us this production, is a community theatre group which provides opportunities for community members to see quality plays as well as get involved in all aspects of production. I recommend checking out this cool collaborative archive (linked here) between A2CT and the Ann Arbor Public Library to learn a little more about their history and relationships with the community. The site provides both a history of the organization and vintage photos and materials from productions since the group formed in 1929. I’m excited to be a part of A2CT’s audience for the first time, and hope you’ll consider picking up tickets to this weekend’s show!
