El curiós incident del gos a mitjanit

This is the theatrical adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which won the Whitbread Book Award for Best Novel in 2003 and the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book. Selling more than two million copies in its first year, it was voted one of the top five children’s books in the BBC’s literacy campaign. The main character is a fifteen-year-old boy, a self-described “mathematician with some behavioral difficulties,” who sets out to tackle an unsolved mystery in this good old-fashioned British romp directed by Julio Manrique.

Christopher Boone is an extraordinary boy. He’s extraordinarily intelligent and loves mathematics and stargazing, imagining that he will one day travel the universe in a spaceship.
Christopher Boone is a different kind of boy. He’s often confused by people, because it seems they have this strange tendency not to say what they’re actually thinking.
Like a little Sherlock Holmes, Christopher Boone will set out to solve the mysterious assassination of his neighbors’ dog, Wellington.
Like a little Ulysses, Christopher Boone will dare to cross the ocean of fears, obstacles, confusion and noise that isolate him from the world and, for the first time in his life, will take a train, setting off for London, fleeing a lie.
Christopher Boone is my hero. One of them, anyways. And I hope he also becomes one of yours.
Julio Manrique
