Can’t get to London? Here’s your chance to see a National Theatre Live broadcast of Simon Stephens’ beautiful and imaginative stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling novel at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater. Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain—exceptional at math, while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. Filmed live at the National’s Olivier Theatre and broadcast by National Theatre Live. Presented by L.A. Theatre Works and the James Bridges Theater at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film, Television, 235 Charles E. Young Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90095; Sept 15 @ 7:30pm; $10-$20; 310.827.0889; www.latw.org; Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LATheatreWorks; follow us on Twitter @latheatreworks
