The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) will feature a showing of National Theatre Live’s (NTL) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Monday, Sept. 10. This special one-night movie event is set for 7:30 p.m. in the Martha R. Tatum Theatre on the Hattiesburg campus.

This critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse) has astonished audiences around the world and has received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was first performed at the National Theatre on August 22, 2012.

It is seven minutes after midnight, and young boy Christopher is on the case to solve the mystery of who murdered the dog Wellington. Though he has an extraordinary brain, the boy lacks the skills to interpret every-day life. In this coming-of-age story, Christopher’s detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been considered “nothing short of a triumph” by Variety. The Times has even stated “If ever there was a perfect theatrical marriage of performance and effect, this is it.”

Tickets for this one-night only event are $15 for the general public and $10 for students. It is only $7 each for groups of 20 or more.
