Let The Right One In
A stage adaptation by Jack Thorne
Based on the novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist
Directed by John Tiffany
Marla Rubin and Bill Kenwright present a National Theatre of Scotland production, in association with The Royal Court.
Oskar is a lonely boy from a broken home. He's bullied at school and is longing for friendship. Eli is a troubled girl who's just moved in next door. She never goes to school and is compelled to fill an eternal emptiness.
When a series of brutal killings plagues the neighbourhood, these two young misfits make a deep connection, sensing in each other a kindred spirit. But the shocking truth about Eli tests Oskar's loyalty - and love - beyond all imaginable limits, in this chilling tale of loneliness, love and legend.
Tony and Olivier Award-winning director John Tiffany (Black Watch, Once) directs this major new production by Jack Thorne with Olivier Award-winning associate director Steven Hoggett (Black Watch, Beautiful Burnout, American Idiot).
