The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time concerns the mysterious death of a neighbor’s dog that is investigated by young neurodivergent Christopher Boone. Presenting the story as a “play-within-a-play,” the plot is presented as a reading of Boone's own writing. 

Under the direction of MFA director Stacy Hawking, the play is based on the 2003 mystery novel by the same name. The play debuted on Broadway in the fall of 2014 and has since recorded numerous awards.
