THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME


“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, at the Citadel Theatre through October 9, 2016, is one of the most interesting, multi-layered and thoughtful plays to have come along in a long, long time.” – Graham Hicks, Hicks Biz

“You will leave the theatre impressed by some pretty magical storytelling and, perhaps, with a new way of looking at the world around you.” – Colin MacLean, Gigcity

“In the enormously challenging role of the enigmatic young man who sees the world in strictly, often amusingly, literal terms and who incites strife around him, Stapleton is impressive.” – Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal
