The Tony award-winning play based on Mark Haddon’s 2003 best-selling novel, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” is playing Portland Center Stage at The Armory March 6 through April 6. The production follows Christopher, an exceptionally intelligent (and exceptionally honest) 15-year-old boy on the autism spectrum who is under suspicion of killing his neighbor’s dog. Determined to find the true culprit, Christopher’s detective work takes him on a deeply personal quest that upturns his world.
Various community events will be held in association with the show, including discussions with cast, crew, and community guests, a pre-show musical performance by PHAME Academy, and a gallery show featuring work by artists with autism. There will also be a special sensory-friendly performance on March 31 at 7:30 p.m. This family-friendly performance will include some changes for those who are on the autism spectrum or have other sensory issues. The production and theater environment will be altered, including modifications to sound and lighting. Patrons are invited to make sounds, enter and exit as needed during the performance. A quiet space will be available for people who want a break.
