This Best-Selling Novel by Mark Haddon Comes to Life at Florida Studio Theatre

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is Sarasota’s contemporary theatre, located in the heart of downtown. It has been in operation in Sarasota since 1973. The Florida Studio Theatre campus is a village of theatres – the historic Keating and Gompertz Theatres, the Parisian-style Goldstein and John C. Court Cabarets, and Bowne's Lab Theatre. Near the Sarasota bayfront, FST brings an energy and vitality to the downtown area. Each theatre is small in size and large in impact – providing an intimate and engaging setting for high-quality, professional performances.

Check out our latest production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” which is being performed on Friday, March 8th.

Winner of 5 Tony Awards and 7 Olivier Awards, Florida Studio Theatre presents the international hit play “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”. “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage, adapted by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott.

During this play, Christopher Boone is exceptionally intelligent, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He sets out to investigate the bizarre death of a neighbor’s dog, inspiring a series of events that expose far greater mysteries. As the clues fall into place, they reveal a community of disparate characters, a family with secrets, and a gifted mind in a complicated relationship with the world.

This international hit takes you inside the extraordinary mind of a boy who views the world as most of us can only imagine. This play is suitable for audiences 16 and up. Ticket prices range from $29-$59 and are available online at or by calling the FST Box Office at 941-366-9000.

Community interaction is an important part of life, which is why Villa San Carlos Apartments in Port Charlotte, Florida is urging you to join in the all of the excitement at this event! Don’t be shy—plenty of fun awaits in the greater neighborhood beyond our beautiful apartment community.
