“I’m not that. I live on blood. But I am not…that…Can I come in?”
Oskar is a lonely bullied teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town. Eli, a girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day.
Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two quickly become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know however, is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time... As their friendship deepens, as a series of sinister killings shock the neighbourhood.
A must-see major production, Let the Right One In is a truly rare piece of theatre, an enchanting, brutal vampire myth and a coming-of-age love story.
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).
