'Curious Incident' has been seen by almost two and a half million people worldwide.

After an "A*" run in London of nearly five years, the Tony and Olivier-winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will shutter on June 3, 2017 at the Gielgud Theatre. A tour of the U.K. and Ireland is set to kick off in January 2017 and a North American tour will continue until September 2017.

Directed by Marianne Elliott and adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling book by Simon Stephens, at time of closing the show will have played over 1,600 performances and been seen by over one million people in London, and almost two and a half million people worldwide. The original production opened at the National Theatre’s Cottesloe Theatre in September 2012, and transferred to the Apollo Theatre in March 2013 before moving to the Gielgud Theatre in July 2014. Curious Incident ran at Broadway’s Barrymore Theatre in New York from September 2014 until September 2016.

The show tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone, who has an extraordinary brain; and is exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He sets out to solve a mystery of who killed his neighbor’s dog, but his detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

The West End cast currently includes Joseph Ayre as Christopher Boone, with Jo Castleton as his teacher Siobhan, Nicolas Tennant as Ed, Sarah Stanley as Judy, Jacqueline Clarke as Mrs Alexander, Amanda Posener as Mrs Shears, Ross Waiton as Roger Shears, Matthew Trevannion as Mr. Thompson, Gemma Knight Jones as No.40/Punk Girl, David Nellist as Reverend Peters and Thomas Dennis as the alternate Christopher.
