When Christopher falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he uses his love of Sherlock Holmes and his own astute deductive abilities to solve the mystery in this journey of discovery.

With the plays illustrations of what Christopher is feeling, its evocations of his gift for math, and its sensitive depiction of how his unique brain works, “Curious Incident” finds a thrilling and heartfelt way to highlight the nuanced internal world of someone on the autism spectrum.
