SCHENECTADY — The National Theatre presents the Tony Award-winning drama “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” Nov. 23, 25, 26 and 27 at Proctors, 432 State St.
The play is based on Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel about a 15-year-old boy with an extraordinary brain. Christopher is exceptionally intelligent, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.
