My first visit to Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre. Selina had bought Rosemary, Phil & me tickets to see “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime”, a play about an autistic teenager. The staging of it was fantastic. A black box, with a grid pattern and lights at the grid intersections which indicated a houses, or furniture, or a tube station. Very, very clever. It took me a while to understand what the plot was, never having read the book (both girls had, of course). All I had heard was a mention of Sherlock Holmes, so I was wondering when Sherlock would arrive, or was this a great detective story? My problem had been a quick google of the title only without reading even a synopsis.
“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NightTime” is a 2003 mystery novel by British writer Mark Haddon. Its title quotes the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes in Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1892 short story “Silver Blaze”.
Think I missed the word title in the above quote when I read it.
As a first time visitor to the Waterside Theater I was quite impressed.
Wonder what it will be like when it’s rearranged for the King Crimson concert I am going to on the 31st August (without Rosemary).
