Rebecca Lacey in The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time
New Cast Members Join the Popular West End Play from the National Theatre
The popular The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time continues at the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End, the latest home for a show that has previously been seen at the Apollo and National Theatres.
Now its ongoing run is likely to gain further traction as a casting announcement emerges, with names like Rebecca Lacey set to join the production from 22nd June 2015. She is announced alongside the likes of Sion Daniel Young, Jacqueline Clarke, Indra Ove, Stephen Beckett, Kaffe Keating, Pearl Mackie, Sean Mckenzie, Mary Stockley, and Matthew Trevannion.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time chronicles the story of Christopher, a teenager with learning difficulties who discovers his neighbour’s dog’s dead body. The crime requires an investigation and Christopher must get to the bottom of this, not only to put the matter to rest but also to clear his own name.
The critically acclaimed production is based on the equally as popular novel by Mark Haddon and is directed in the West End by Marianne Elliot. It is one of many National Theatre productions to find success in Theatreland following the likes of War Horse and One Man, Two Guvnors in recent years.
Rebecca Lacey joins the cast as Siobhan, Christopher’s teacher. She is a well known actress whose roles have included many appearances on the screen, from Carry On Columbus to Arthur’s Dyke. But she is also known for television and stage roles and has accumulated credits such as Pride And Prejudice at the Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park and Amy’s View in the West End, plus the shows The Bill, Heartbeat, Casualty and various others.
The show is the latest in a long line of shows to recently announce casting changes, with others like Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables adding new names in recent months.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time is currently booking at the Gielgud Theatre for performance to Saturday 24th October 2015.
