Albright Theatre to perform Tony Award-winning play
Albright College’s award-winning theatre troupe, the Domino Players, will perform “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 14-16, 8 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m., in Wachovia Theatre. A talkback and reception follows the opening night show (Thur., Nov. 14).
Based on a best-selling 2003 novel by Mark Haddon and adapted by Simon Stephens, this Tony and Oliver Award-winning play will be directed by Jeffrey Lentz, M.M. ’85, senior artist in residence and co-chair of music.
The play is about a 15-year-old math whiz who lives with his divorced dad in a working-class town near London. After being falsely accused of killing a neighbor’s dog, the brilliant boy — who has difficulty dealing with the sounds and stresses of everyday life — decides to investigate the crime. The secrets he unearths prompt him to leave his trusted teacher and the familiar streets of his hometown for a life-changing train trip to London.
Albright’s Domino Players received an astounding nine national awards for its 2018-19 production of “A Raisin in the Sun,” including the Kennedy Center’s highest national honor for Outstanding Production of a Play — the troupe’s third national title since 2007.
Tickets for “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” are $15 for adults or $10 for alumni, senior citizens, students and staff. Visit the Albright College box office in person or online at albright.edu/centerforthearts or call (610) 921-7547.
