The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time triumphed at the Tony Awards last night with five wins, including Best Play, while Helen Mirren won her first Tony for her portrayal of The Queen in The Audience.

Curious, the adaptation of Mark Haddon's bestselling novel which originated at the National Theatre, also won for Lead Actor, Director, Scenic Design and Lighting Design.

Alex Sharp, who plays Christopher Boone, is a Brit who trained at Juilliard and is marking his Broadway debut in the show. He said it was "insane" to be winning a Tony just a year after graduating. He topped a category that included Bradley Cooper and Bill Nighy.

Marianne Elliott, who won Best Director for the production, said: "It was incredible to see the audience at the National Theatre, then for that to grow in to the West End. To have even the slightest idea that it would go to Broadway, let alone to win these awards is incredible."

Other British winners included Skylight, named Best Revival of a Play to give playwright David Hare his first Tony, and Wolf Hall, which picked up Best Costume - its only win out of eight nominations.

Mirren's Audience co-star Richard McCabe picked up Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play.

Out of 24 categories, 10 were won by Brits or British productions.

In the musicals categories, Fun Home also won five, including Best Musical, becoming the first show with an all-female creative team to win the top award.

And Gershwin musical An American in Paris and The King and I each won four, the latter winning Kelli O'Hara her first Tony after losing out five times previously.
