35,000 people went to see it during a brief, three week run at The Lowry. Now the adaptation of Mark Haddon’s smash-hit novel is coming to Liverpool Empire Theatre – and you can win tickets.

Seven Oliviers, a Time Magazine “top theatrical experience of the year” award, and one from our own Manchester Theatre Awards. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a production that has pulled off the almost impossible feat of achieving mainstream success and critical acclaim.

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to see the show’s opening performance

The adaptation of Mark Haddon’s hugely popular book by the same title tells the sometimes funny, other times moving story of Christopher, a young boy with an extraordinary, mathematical brain who (it is implied) has Asperger’s – and falls under suspicion of murdering his neighbour’s dog. The search for the true culprit takes Christopher on a journey that challenges his whole world.

Now, the production is coming to Liverpool – to the city’s Empire Theatre, to be precise – and we’re giving away a pair of tickets to see the show’s opening performance on Tuesday, 21 July, as well as a brochure for the show and a drink at the interval. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning them it to enter your details in the form below. The competition closes at 10am on Friday, 10 July – good luck!
