A teenager who is exceptional at math and dealing with Asperger’s syndrome is at the heart of the Tony Award-winning play “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” which Burroughs High School students are presenting this weekend.

Directed by Guy Myers, who was recently named a California Teacher of the Year, the play’s main character, Christopher, played by Eli Staub, finds a dead dog in his neighbor’s backyard, which leads him on a journey that turns his world upside down.

Performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday in the auditorium at Burroughs High, 1920 W. Clark Ave., Burbank.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, $10 for students and $15 for senior citizens. All Burbank Unified middle school students get in for free with a school ID.
