OAKHURST — Yosemite High School’s theater department invites the community to their fall play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
It’s a mystery that explores an autistic teenager’s search to see who killed a neighbor’s dog and confront the ugly realities of a dysfunctional family.
Through this journey, the teen finds newfound strength and independence.
YHS teacher Lars Thorson is directing the production.
“It is a beautiful, sad, and very modern play,” Thorson says. “I am enormously proud of my students for their willingness to take on such challenging material. It has been a scary, but fun experience.”
Penned by Simon Stephens and based on Mark Haddon’s novel of the same name, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time earned the top Tony Award for Best Play of 2015, along with many other awards as it swept across the nation.
Now, Yosemite High School presents the Central California premiere of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, as curtains rise for three nights only: Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 15 – 17. The show starts at 7 p.m. in the YHS Theater.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens.
