The 2018-2019 Chinook high school theatre season opens with a 5-time Tony Award, 7-time Olivier Award winning play.  This story is all about perspectives, it brings the audience into the mind of a 15 year old boy with Autism through a combination of storytelling, acting and technology.  At the play’s opening, Christopher Boone discovers his neighbour’s dog has been killed, and he is the main suspect.  As he spends time figuring out who the true killer is, he uncovers family secrets that throw his perfectly ordered life into chaos, forcing him to bravely face the world on his own for the first time.

Parental guidance is recommended as the play includes mature themes and language.
