It’s been called “the most inventive new show on Broadway.” The acclaimed National Theatre production of the show won 7 Olivier Awards. It opened in New York in October and a national tour was recently announced.

Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott directs an adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens. Based on Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, the drama follows Christopher — a 15-year-old mathematics savant with an often crippling antisocial disorder — as he pieces together clues to solve a neighborhood mystery and comes to a greater understanding of his own family.

  It’s a show that counts performances from its cast that are by turns full-throttle and heartfelt and relies on an amazing set, light, video, and sound design to help the audience see the world and action of the play in a logically and sometimes logically overwhelming way - approximating the thought process of the main character, Christopher.

Here we are joined by cast member Francesca Faridany. Faridany is a British American actress and playwright. He previous Broadway credits include The 39 Steps, Man and Boy, and Macbeth. She speaks with us about education, performing out of period costume, and working with rats.
