Reading, PA – 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 or call (610) 921-7547.
