Mark Haddon’s 2003 book of the same name was a monster hit with readers of every age. This is a children’s mystery but it has a wide appeal and thrills adults as much as it excites younger people. The book has been adapted by Simon Stephens to excellent effect to create a production so good it has transferred to the West End, an honour only achieved by the very best.

He's called Don Juan in Spanish. In Italian he's Don Giovanni. Whatever you call him, he's the world's most famous literary libertine, whose legend was first written by the Spanish dramatist Tirso de Molina. His play, called The Trickster of Seville and the Stone Guest, was set in the 1300s and published in Spain in about 1630. Since then the story has been translated, rewritten and re-presented countless times, and it's the reason why the name 'Don Juan' remains such a potent metaphor for womanisers.

Starring: Tamsin Greig
