ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Elmira Little Theatre is getting ready for its performance of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time", which premiers at Mandeville Hall in the Clemens Center Friday.

The play follows the story of a 15-year-old autistic boy, who discovers his neighbor's dog murdered. The boy takes it upon himself to solve the dog's murder.

"We learn about his family, his mother, his father... we learn that he is very capable, and he learns just what he's capable of doing. And, he grows immensely through this process," said Janice Slocum, who plays the Narrator in "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time".

The performance does not follow a linear sequence, the show jumps around in how and where it tells the story, attempting to take the viewer inside the mind of the 15-year-old autistic boy. The director of 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' tells WENY they are using light, sound and projections on the floors and walls to immerse the audience into the story.

"We're really trying to create in the best way we can, and I think we've got it, really, well done," said Shari Paige-Rich, the director of the show.

Representatives say the play may not suit children or adults sensitive to light, sound, strong language and physical violence. Officials say the show is appropriate for older teenagers and adults.

"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" has six performances. You can catch the show Friday March 15 and 22, Saturday March 16 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday March 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. Get tickets here.
