Based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon and following a successful Broadway run, Vermont Stage brings this story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone and his investigation into the seemingly suspicious loss of a neighborhood dog. The audience experiences Christopher’s point of view as a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder while they solve the mystery along with him, activating new understandings of the experiences of persons with ASD and engaging in the unique storytelling methods of this inventive production.
