Hickory – The Hickory Community Theatre continues its 70th season with the ambitious, imaginative story of a young man on a great adventure. Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has an extraordinary mind, but is less well equipped to deal with the challenges of everyday life. When falsely accused of killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to find the true culprit. His journey across London leads to an earth-shattering discovery that will change his life forever. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play, and featuring a cast of ten in over thirty roles, HCT takes on its largest production challenge yet in bringing The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to Hickory.
