"Extraordinarily imaginative . . . the play contains one of the single scariest moments ever seen onstage. Yet at its heart, Let The Right One In is a stirring love story." — TheaterMani

From the director and playwright of 2016’s spectacular smash Harry Potter and the Cursed Child comes this spellbinding piece of theatrical storytelling. Supernatural thriller Let The Right One In is a brutal and tender vampire myth told through the turbulence of a coming-of-age romance. Oskar, a lonely boy from a broken home, is bullied at school and longing for friendship. Eli, the young girl who moves in next door, doesn’t attend school and rarely leaves home. When a series of mysterious killings plagues the neighborhood, these two young misfits, sensing in each other a kindred spirit, forge a deep connection. But the shocking truth about one of them tests their young friendship—and love—beyond all imaginable limits. 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 novel and subsequent film.
"Killingly staged by John Tiffany and Steven Hoggett . . . the most compassionate of vampire stories . . ." — The New York Times
"Let The Right One In is about kids in great danger . . . thrilling and terrifying—just like childhood." — Time Out New York
