9 July 2014 Last updated at 11:25 BST

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has re-opened in the West End after it was put on hold because of the Apollo theatre ceiling collapse last December.

Director Marianne Elliott tells BBC arts correspondent Tim Masters how the cast put on special performances for the emergency services and local children as part of the recovery process.

She also reveals that the forthcoming Broadway production will still be set in Wiltshire, with the American cast having to learn Swindon accents.

The play, based on Mark Haddon's best-selling book, is now on at London's Gielgud Theatre.
