The Most Acclaimed Play in Years – Winner of the Tony and Olivier Award for Best Play – A Charleston Premiere

Receiving rave reviews in both London and New York, Curious Incident received a record-breaking 7 Olivier awards in London, 5 Tony Awards in New York, and became the longest-running play on Broadway in over a decade. Curious Incident tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone, who, having been accused of killing a neighbor’s dog named Wellington, sets out to find the real culprit. Though he possesses a brilliant mind and is a marvel at math, Christopher is ill-equipped to interact with others. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and distrusts strangers. Overcoming his fears, he sets out on a remarkable detective journey that will upturn his world and the world around him.
