Event Notes


This production has been collectively composed, choreographed, and arranged by the students, under the direction of Jason Donaldson and Michelle Footz.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a play by Simon Stephens, based on the novel by Mark Haddon. The play explores themes of differences and self actualization. Protagonist Christopher Boone is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbour‘s dead dog, Wellington, who has been stabbed with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery. His detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.


2 hours with concession and intermission

GISPA 2024’s striking adaptation features fully integrated physical theatre, dramatic elements, and an originally composed score.
