The Peterborough Players plans to present an encore screening of the National Theatre’s production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime” on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The play opens as Christopher, 15 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 in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at math, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, 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.

The critically acclaimed production, directed by Marianne Elliot (“Angels in America,” “War Horse”) has received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards.

Runtime is approximately 2 hours and 46 minutes including one intermission.

Tickets to National Theatre Live screenings are $20. For tickets and information, call 924-7585 or visit www.peterboroughplayers.org.
