We are thrilled to be tackling this beloved story, based on the best-selling novel written by Mark Haddon. It has been a long-time occupant of ETC's bucket list!

The book and the play follow the story of Christopher John Francis Boone, a 15-year-old boy living in Swindon, Wiltshire, who embarks on a mysterious adventure to solve the murder of a neighbor's dog. Christopher, a mathematician with a love for red cars also has Asperger syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism.

At the helm of his third production this season, director Garry Lee Posey is excited to bring one of his favorite novels to life. "What I find fascinating about this play is it's many levels of storytelling. It operates at a pace that is at times maddening, it employs a structure that is both disconcerting and satisfying, and begs the artists to find a new approach to creating. I imagine this to be an objectification of the inner workings of the mind of those on the spectrum, and with that, the brilliance of this play becomes touchingly apparent."

In his third appearance on the ETC stage, Normand Caissie will be tackling the challenging role of Christopher. "Bringing Christopher to life on stage was, and still is, a terrifying and intimidating challenge. However, the responsibility of portraying this imaginative and inquisitive boy with this incredible gift for thinking is deeply desirable for me. To tell this story of family, love, and difference has been a beautiful and challenging process that has only come together due to incredibly hand-in-hand teamwork and passion our entire ensemble of actors and creators have."
