The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

For those of you in the Madison Wisconsin area, this is a shout-out for a wonderful play coming to the Bartell Theatre in downtown Madison.

The play focuses around fifteen-year-old Christopher who has an extraordinary brain – he is exceptional at mathematics, but ill equipped to interpret everyday life. When his neighbor’s dog is killed with a garden fork, Christopher finds himself under suspicion and is determined to solve the mystery.

The play deals with issues of autism, and helps us to see beyond a person’s limitations and focus on what they can really accomplish.

Here is a link to a recent article in the Wisconsin State Journal that goes into much more detail. And there is a radio interview at WORT-FM – look for the “8 O’Clock Buzz” show on Monday May 6. The interview starts at the 33:30 time mark.
