TRENTON—Next up from Open Book is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which will run from March 15 through April 13. Tickets are available online at www.openbooktc.com.
An adaptation of the popular novel, the story follows Christopher Boone, a 15-year-old who sets out to solve the mystery of who killed the neighbor’s dog. Christopher is a mathematical genius but has a hard time interacting with the outside world – he doesn’t understand metaphor, doesn’t like to be touched, and has strong color preferences. The character is widely considered to be on the autism spectrum, although a diagnosis is never stated.
The play features Joshua Whitson as Christopher, Jaclynn Cherry as Siobhan, Robert Schorr as Ed Boon, Carrie Jay Sayers as Judy Boone. Jean Pilon, Joshua Brown, Dale Dobson, Allison Megroet and Linda Rabin Hammell play various characters throughout the play. Directed by Adriane Galea with set by Shane O’Connor, lighting design by Harley Miah, props design by Reyna DeSilva, and stage management by Danielle Gilbert.
