Hailed as "One of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway" by The New York Times, don’t miss this Tony Award-winning play by Simon Stephens. bree Valle directs this "dazzling" (Associated Press) adaptation of Mark Haddon's best-selling novel in a limited two-week run in Cuesta College’s intimate Experimental Theater.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
