‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ Premieres This Week in the Park

Winner of five Tony Awards including
‘Best Play’ and seven Olivier Awards, The Curious Incident of the Dog
in the Night-Time
brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to
thrilling life on the outdoor stage at the PORT Park starting this week.

The play was adapted by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens.

Appollinaire Theatre is ready for its annual outdoor production this month, starting this week with the award-winning play, ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’, featuring Seamus Doyle as Christopher. All productions are free, Weds.through Sunday, 8 p.m. In the PORT Park.

The play will be the annual drama in the
park performance that is free and open to the public throughout July. The
premiere started on Wednesday, July 10, but will continue Weds. through Sunday
until July 28.

Tenacious and intelligent, Christopher
has an extraordinary brain – better at solving math equations than
navigating a world that’s stubbornly out of sync with how his mind
works. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests
being touched, and he distrusts strangers. When he falls
under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify
the true culprit. His detective work leads to
an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his
life forever.

Fifteen-year old Christopher will be played
by 15-year old Seamus Doyle, who has appeared in Commonwealth Shakespeare
Company’s productions of Richard III and Fear and
Misery in the Third Reich
. His credits include Fiddler on the Roof with
New Repertory Theatre, and more than 10 productions with Watertown
Children’s Theatre. He previously played Christopher in a school production
of Curious Incident at Buckingham, Browne & Nichols
school.

Sound Designer/Composer David

Reiffel will be creating the sonic world.

This is David’s 22nd show with Apollinaire –
standouts include last summer’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Norton
nominee- Outstanding Fringe Production). His work has also been heard coast to
coast from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to Boston’s SpeakEasy Stage. He
recently won the

Norton award for Outstanding Musical
Direction. Lighting Designer Christopher Bocchiaro, whose work made a
