English Literature / Drama GCSE: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time: From Page to Stage

This BBC series, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time: From Page to Stage, was made in collaboration with the National Theatre.

It explores how Mark Haddon’s much-loved novel became a multi-award-winning theatre production.

Interviews with the playwright, director and cast and footage from both rehearsal and performance reveal the process of bringing the story alive on stage.

These short films are suitable for teaching GCSE English literature and drama in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 5 in Scotland.
