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
The production at St. Ann’s Warehouse will be presented with the National Theatre of Scotland by arrangement with Bill Kenwright and Marla Rubin Productions Ltd and in association with piece by piece productions.
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).
