"Great play for teens and adults…"
The stage version of Mark Haddon's mystery novel is back in the West End with a new home at the Gielgud Theatre. It brings the book to life brilliantly; really imaginative staging. This is a very faithful adaptation - a little too faithful if, like me, you've only very recently read the book! The dialogue is almost completely derived from the book, but the moments when it goes off-piste are brilliant, so it's a shame this doesn't happen more often. If you get the opportunity to stay for a little extra at the end, it's well worth it!
