The Apollo Theatre's hit drama The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time is getting a new cast. Marianne Elliott's critically lauded National Theatre production will begin performances with its new company on 2 September.
Mike Noble (pictured), seen recently in Port at the National Theatre, will take over the the lead role of autistic teenager and would-be sleuth Christopher Boone from Luke Treadaway.
Joining him in the cast will be Rakie Ayola as Siobhan, Daniel Casey as Roger Shears, Jo Dockery as Punk Girl, Amanda Drew as Judy, Patrick Driver as Reverend Peters, Trevor Fox as Ed, Jack Loxton as the alternative Christopher, Golda Rosheuvel as Mrs. Shears, Gay Soper as Mrs. Alexander and Paul Stocker as Mr. Thompson. Also appearing will be Katie Elizabeth Payne, Mark Rawlings, Matt Tait and Cathy Walker.
The play is based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning 2003 novel about 15 year old Christopher Boone, who uses facts, forensics and systemised data (a symptom of his autistic-like behaviour) to launch an investigation into finding the killer of his neighbour’s dog.
The show's current cast members will continue in their roles until 31 August.
