Captured live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse) has astonished audiences around the world and received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards.
Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher is under suspicion.
He records each fact of the case in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. Christopher has an extraordinary brain, and while exceptional at math he is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured beyond the end of his road alone, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work—forbidden by his father—takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
