The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time wins the Tony Award for Best New Play, as well as four other Tony Awards including Best Director, Best Leading Actor in a Play, Best Scenic Design, and Best Lighting Design. Director:
We’ve had quite an adventure with this play We were just intent on trying to portray the world according to this very remarkable and extraordinary story. We didn’t set out to make a dime. We never thought we’d even find an audience, and every day we took risks and we often said to each other that we were working outside our comfort zones, with our hearts and our mouths. So you can tell how much this means.

Our show is about home. It’s about finding who you are. Alison Bechtel gave us a beautiful story of her home and shared it with all of us. And Lisa and Janine and Sam and our beautiful company have tried to share it with everybody else. I feel like the home I found has been with some grace for a little light to talk into the darkness.
