THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME

A play by Simon Stephens
Based on the novel by Mark Haddon
Directed by Kate Jopson
Set Design by JR Bruce
Costume Design by Danae Iris McQueen
Lighting Design by Azra King-Abadi
Sound Design by Jesse Mandapat

15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics 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. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play. “This adaptation by the acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens is intensely, innately theatrical; it is also funny and extremely moving…resonates with quality.” —Telegraph (London). “…just terrific…a profoundly moving play about adolescence, fractured families, mathematics, colours and lights…dazzling.” —Independent (London). “A beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.” —Evening Standard (London). Featuring Iain Kohn, Kacie Rogers, Michael Yurchak, Joanna Strapp, Tristan Cunningham, Abe Martell, Robert Paterno, Bill Salyers, Selina Scott-Benin and Denise Moses, with Darius De La Cruz, Alexandra Hellquist, and Coby Bird.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME was first presented by the National Theatre, London at the Cottesloe Theatre on August 2nd 2012 and transferred to the Gielgud Theatre, West End, London on March 12th 2013. The Play opened in the USA at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on October 5th 2014.

This Play is presented by kind permission of Warner Bros. Entertainment.

THE CHINESE LADY – Los Angeles Premiere! Co-Production with Artists at Play

Set & Property Design by Austin Kottkamp
Costume Design by Hyun Sook Kim
Lighting Design by Wesley Charles Chew
Sound Design by Jesse Mandapat
Inspired by the true story of America’s first female Chinese immigrant, THE CHINESE LADY is a dark, poetic, yet whimsical portrait of America through the eyes of a young Chinese woman. Afong Moy is 14 years old when she’s brought to the United States from Canton in 1834. Allegedly the first Chinese woman to set foot on U.S. soil, she has been bought and put on display for the American public as “The Chinese Lady.” For the next half a century, she performs for curious museum-goers, showing them how she eats, what she wears, and the highlight of the event: how she walks with bound feet. As the decades wear on, her celebrated sideshow comes to define and challenge her very sense of identity. THE CHINESE LADY blurs the line between the observed and the observer, and gives us new eyes on the history of American entitlement and immigration. Featuring Amy Shu and Trieu Tran, with Hao Feng and Stephanie Wong.
