A DINNER is being help to celebrate the north west premiere of an award-winning production.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher who has an extraordinary brain, except-ional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.

When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears’ a dog, it takes him on a journey that overturns his world.

The play, adapted for the London stage from the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon and staged by the National Theatre, received seven Olivier Awards in 2013.

It will be performed at The Lowry from December 18 to January 10 as part of its first UK tour.

The opening night dinner is on December 18 and will include a drinks reception on the Hexagon Bridge, dinner in the Hexagon Room and the best seats in the house for the show.

Tickets are £100 each, with proceeds going to The Lowry Centre Trust to help deliver a programme of creative engagement with young people.

To book, call the Box Office on 0843 208 6010 or email invitations@thelowry.com for groups of 10 or more.

Standard tickets range from £30 to £44, including a £2 booking fee and can be booked by visiting thelowry.com/event/the-curious-incident-of-the-dog-in-the-night-time.
