The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was a new and refreshing take on theatre. I enjoyed the perspective that was provided. People with disabilities are not usually the main focus in media. Having the story be told from the mind of a main character who is someone with autism gave the audience a new way to look at things. 
I liked that people were used to represent ideas and objects. Things like doors and cabinets were instead replaced by people acting out the motions. Furthermore, settings like buses and trains weren’t present on stage but there was enough sound and body movement
given portrayed by the crew for the audience to infer. Overall I would say this was in my top two favorites of the things that we saw in class so far.
