Premiere Professional Theatre of Baton Rouge

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Part “who done it” murder mystery, part journey of self-discovery, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a show you won’t want to miss. This Tony Award winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s well-loved novel tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone, a young man with an extraordinary mind who sets out to discover who killed the neighbor’s dog and winds up going on the journey of a lifetime.

Adapted by Simon Stephens
Directed by Richard Holden

Our Mission

Swine Palace operates with a dual mission to provide South Louisiana with high quality, professional productions of classical and contemporary theater with an emphasis on plays exploring issues of social equity while also serving as a training ground for students in Louisiana State University’s M.F.A. Professional Actor and Technical/Design Training Programs.

Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.
