The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time to play in Wolverhampton Schools

A specially staged production of the National Theatre’s award-winning play, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time will be seen by eight secondary schools in Wolverhampton in partnership with Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.

The schools tour of the play forms part of the National Theatre’s drive to introduce new audiences to theatre, in a three-year partnership working with local theatres and schools. In November 2018 the tour will visit Coppice Performing Arts School, Khalsa Academy, The University of Wolverhampton, Colton Hills Community School and King’s Church of England School.
The schools tour is a 90-minute version of the play performed in the round and will be followed by a Q&A session for students with the company. The tour is accompanied by a learning programme which includes professional development for teachers led by the NT and Curious Incident movement directors Frantic Assembly, as well as curriculum-based resources and workshops. James Collins, Creative Learning Co-ordinator at the Grand Theatre said;

“I am thrilled that we are able to work with the National Theatre to take this fantastic play into schools. As a theatre, we aim to engage with as many young people as possible.

"In particular, we strive to reach those who may not have the opportunity to attend quality drama productions, such as those produced by the National Theatre. The fact that we can do this through the Curious Incident schools tour is extremely exciting.”
Alice King-Farlow, Director of Learning at the National Theatre added: “At the National Theatre we believe that all young people should have the opportunity to experience and participate in drama no matter where they are in the UK.

"We’re delighted to be touring this award-winning play to schools, and via our Theatre Nation Partnership with Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, we hope that bringing Simon Stephen’s brilliant Curious Incident to young audiences in Wolverhampton will help to spark imaginations and encourage participation in theatre.”
