The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time | Pali High

Palisades Charter High School presents “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” for its Fall Play.

“Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life,” Dramatists Play Service states. “He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. Now it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork.

“Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.”

Performances run November 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16 at 7 p.m., as well as November 9 and 16 at 2 p.m. in Mercer Hall. Tickets, available at brownpapertickets.com/event/4418731, are $10 for students, general $16 and VIP for $23.
