'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time'


A group of keen theatre-lovers from across the school visited the Mayflower theatre in Southampton towards the end of term to watch the new West End sensation ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’. The play was a fantastic, exciting and sometimes shocking drama and made innovative use of a ground-breaking set and some highly effective physical theatre. Based on Mark Haddon’s highly original novel, the play told the story through the eyes of Christopher, a teenager with an extreme form of Asperger’s syndrome. The students were delighted with their front-row seats and captivated from start to finish. Mr O’Farrell is hoping to run more trips in this vein to encourage a love of theatre across the school.
