The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

I stayed home alone last night when Mummy went to see the award-winning play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Truth be told, Mummy first wanted to see it because it mentioned “dog” in the title but maybe her instincts told her it would be a good play.  It did win the 2013 Olivier Awards for best play and best actor.

May’s comment: Poor Wellington was the dog that was killed at the very beginning of the play by a pitch fork. But in the end Christopher gets his own dog – Sandy!  When the little puppy was lifted out of the box, the audience went Awwww! When the puppy licked Christopher’s face, we went – Awwwww!  When Christopher walked the puppy – we went – Awwwww! Again.  That was the best part of the play!

Oh, the play – yes, it was very good. Brilliant performance, fab staging – sweet story.  Well worth the five hours I left Darcy at home – that was the first time she’s been on her own at home.  I kept looking at my watch – still has separation anxiety.
