Monday, June 6, 2022
Krestin Radonovich, PhD, director of child neuropsychology at the WVU Medicine Children’s Neurodevelopmental Center, is serving an autism consultant on the West Virginia Public Theatre summer production of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time."
The show, based on a novel of the same name by Mark Haddon and adapted for the stage by Simon Stevens, won the 2016 Tony award for its moving portrayal of 15-year-old Christopher as he rises to meet new challenges when his world is upended. Seven minutes after midnight, he stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, and becomes determined to solve the mystery of who murdered the dog.
"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" has been praised for promoting acceptance, and many in the autism community believe that the novel and the play helped spread more awareness of autism spectrum disorders.
The performance will take place June 9-12 at the WVU Creative Arts Center, located at the intersection of Patteson Drive and Monongahela Boulevard, diagonal from the WVU Coliseum, in Morgantown.
