Marblehead Little Theater presents The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, written by Simon Stephens, based on the novel by Mark Haddon, produced by Elvira Schoenthal and Emily Black, directed by Steve Black. Performances run January 25th through February 3rd at Marblehead Little Theatre, located at 12 School Street, Marblehead, MA.

Performances are January 25th*, 26th, 31st, February 1st, and 2nd at 7:30 p.m., and January 27th, February 2nd**, and 3rd at 2:00 p.m.
Simon Stephens’s adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling, award-winning novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time offers a richly theatrical exploration of this touching and bleakly humorous tale. Winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time examines the life of a boy with autism (Christopher Boone), his family, and the world around him. The audience enjoys an intimate, sensory experience through the eyes of Christopher, living life stimulated in the way that he experiences it every day.
Please note that the use of strobe lights, loud sounds, and strong language are present in this production. If any of these elements cause concern, we invite you to attend the sensory-friendly performance on Feb. 2nd at 2:00 p.m.
*Benefit Performance Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m.
Marblehead Little Theatre is thrilled to partner with Autism Speaks and donate a portion of the proceeds from the opening night performance to the organization. The mission statement of Autism Speaks includes dedication to supporting the needs of individuals with autism and their families “through advocacy, increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder, and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.” It’s through sharing this experience with audiences that MLT hopes to increase understanding, acceptance, and awareness of autism.
**Sensory Friendly Performance February 2 at 2:00 p.m.
Sensory friendly performances allow everyone to experience the art of theater with an emphasis on meeting the needs and sensitivities of our audiences. Elements which may pose as barriers to the enjoyment of the performance are altered to meet these needs. These alterations may include lowering of volume/heightened moments of intensity, raising levels of lighting, eliminating strobe effects, and allowing for flexibility of audience movement, verbal reactions, and other traditional/expected audience behaviors.
