'Curious' West End play heads to east London

Free performances of West End play The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time will be given to Newham schoolchildren as the show relocates to Stratford for a fortnight.

A collapsed ceiling at The Apollo forced the production into cancelling a host of post-Christmas shows. It will be moved to the Gielgud Theatre from June.

In the meantime, the National Theatre has announced said it is putting on a two-week run at Stratford Old Town Hall.

Around 1,000 schoolchildren will be entertained over eight lunchtime performances of the play in a link-up with Newham Council.

The short run began on Monday and will continue February 13

Newham Mayor Sir Robin Wales said: "This is a wonderful opportunity for our young people to experience this production and we'll continue to seek out and deliver opportunities that enrich children's learning experience."
