Mike Noble Replacing Luke Treadaway in The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time
New Cast Members Revealed for the National Theatre Production in the West End from September 2013
The popular National Theatre production, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, lands in the spotlight once again as new casting announcements emerge. This will see the Laurence Olivier Award-winning actor Luke Treadaway, who earned the award for the role earlier this year, replaced by Mike Noble.
On top of that, further additional actors like Trevor Fox will be added, along with Amanda Drew, Rakie Ayola, Gay Soper, Daniel Casey, Jo Dockery, Jack Loxton, Katie Elizabeth Payne, Golda Rosheuvel, Paul Stocker, Mark Rawlings, Patrick Driver, Matt Tait and Cathy Walker.
Mike Noble will be stepping into big shoes when he takes on the role in September but, should he pull it off, it will be a big career move for the actor whose has so far had few roles on the stage and screen. His credits in a theatre include Port at the Lyttelton National Theatre and Punk Rock at the Lyric Hammersmith, whilst his screen roles have so far included movies like Private Peaceful, World War Z and Jack Ryan, in addition to the television Prisoners Wives.
In The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time he will portray the teenager with behavioural problems Christopher, who discovers the dead dog of his neighbour and then attempts to solve the mystery of the death. Not only is it a mystery for him, he must also find out what happened so that the rest of the community is convinced that he didn’t do it himself.
The play is based on the novel by Mark Haddon and was first staged at the Cottesloe National Theatre in 2012 before transferring to the West End’s Apollo Theatre, following in the footsteps of other National theatre shows like War Horse and One Man, Two Guvnors.
Actor Trevor Fox, who also joins the cast as Ed, has previously appeared in The Tempest at Shakespeare’s Globe, The Pitmen Painters at the Duchess Theatre and Billy Elliot The Musical at the Victoria Palace Theatre, in addition to screen roles like Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason and Billy Elliot.
The new cast takes over from 2nd September 2013. Meanwhile, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time is currently booking at the Apollo Theatre until Saturday 25th October 2014.
