A stage adaptation by Jack Thorne, Based on the novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist


About The Show

Following its sell out success at the Royal Court, the critically-acclaimed South Bank Sky Arts award-winning production of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN will transfer to London’s West End – and be the first show to play the recently re-furbished and re-opened Apollo Theatre  – for a strictly limited season.

A chilling tale of loneliness, love and legend

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 which was adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne following the international success of the original Swedish movie and the subsequent Hollywood remake. The creative team also include Olivier Award-winning associate director Steven Hoggett (Black Watch, Beautiful Burnout, American Idiot).
