In this play based on the best-selling 2003 novel, Christopher, a 15-year-old English boy, discovers the neighbor's dog has been murdered and decides to investigate. Christopher is on the autism spectrum and carefully records each fact in a “murder mystery” book, which provides a look inside his intricate mind. What he discovers upturns his world and empowers him to pursue his dreams and face his fears. Harry Parker, a KU alumnus and chair of Texas Christian University’s Department of Theatre, will serve as the guest director, which is made possible by the Ronald A. Willis Visiting Scholar/Artist Fund. This play is ticketed and open to the public.
