Produced by the Some Theater Company, Orono
Curious Incident takes the audience on an adventure alongside the plays unlikely hero, fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone. When Christopher falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he uses his love of Sherlock Holmes and his own astute deductive abilities to solve the mystery in this journey of discovery.
With the plays illustrations of what Christopher is feeling, its evocations of his gift for math, and its sensitive depiction of how his unique brain works, Curious Incident finds a thrilling and heartfelt way to highlight the nuanced internal world of someone on the autism spectrum.

In conjunction with their February 22-24th showings of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time,” (based on the book by Mark Haddon), MAIER staff will be available with autism information and resources for guests attending the show and will participate in a “Talk –Back” with the cast, crew, & audience after the Sunday afternoon, February 24th showing. Our newly formed collaboration with The Some Theater Company will move beyond this show, as we will be working together to provide theatrical opportunities, both on stage and off, for persons impacted by ASD.
