The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time


Christopher is a 15-yr-old autistic boy with a pet rat who loves math and is incapable of telling a lie. We meet him where he lives with his dad — a working-class neighborhood in a town called Swindon, England — after his neighbor's dog, Wellington, has just been mysteriously murdered. The story unfolds as we travel with Christopher on his journey to uncover the truth behind this terrible crime and grapple with the secrets he uncovers as he bravely risks leaving the care of his trusted teacher to travel via train to London, with all of its overwhelming sound and activity. A story that is equal parts hero's journey and heartwarming family drama, this production is one that invites you to reconnect with your senses, remember the humanity that unites all of us at our core, and reflect on the myriad of ways in which we navigate through this messy and curious universe.


Some Notes About Auditions:

The Curious Incident production team is committed to color-conscious and nontraditional casting for this production. Actors of color are particularly encouraged to audition; race and ethnicity in this production are not germane to the storyline or to the casting of the Boone family. Additionally, actors of all body types and movement abilities are encouraged to audition. We also recognize that the characters in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time are written on the gender binary using she/her and he/him pronouns, and therefore encourage all transgender, non-binary, and gender-variant artists to audition for any roles with which they feel they most identify.

Actors interested in auditioning should prepare a one-minute, memorized monologue that shows their ability to convey either vulnerability or passion. All characters in Curious Incident will speak with a general British accent. While an accent is preferred at auditions, it is not required. A dialect coach will be available to the cast during the rehearsal process.

Actors will need to fill out an audition form and submit a resume and headshot if available.

Role # 1 - Christopher Boone Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Our story\'s hero, who loves mathematics, can name all the countries and capitals of the world, and knows every prime number up to 7,507. Christopher cannot tell a lie, struggles to understand metaphors, and does not like the color yellow. Christopher also does not like physical touch or strangers, and finds certain sounds and noises overwhelming. Christopher is on the autism spectrum, and while this is a large part of who he is, it is by no means all he is.
