by Simon Stephens
based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon

Tenacious and intelligent, fifteen year-old Christopher is an autistic teenager who’s better at solving equations than navigating a world that’s stubbornly out of sync with how his mind works. After being wrongly accused of murdering his neighbor’s dog, Christopher is resolved to find the real culprit. But, when his investigation uncovers painful truths about his family, he dares to strike out on his own, embarking on a thrilling adventure that upturns his entire world.
