“Riveting, emotional, intensely theatrical re-imagining of Mark Haddon's multi-prizewinning bestseller is nothing short of a triumph.” - Variety

National Theatre Live is an initiative by the UK’s National Theatre to broadcast live performances onto cinema screens around the world.Since its first season, which began in June 2009 with the acclaimed production of Phédre starring Helen Mirren, over 750,000 people have now experienced the National’s work on movie screens worldwide.

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington.  He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math while 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. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.  Simon Stephens’ adaptation offers a richly theatrical exploration of the touching and bleakly humorous, award-winning novel.
