A stage adaptation by Jack Thorne based on the Swedish novel and film by Jon Ajvide Lindqvist.

“They say he killed them like pigs. Hung them up and watched the blood drain. I’m not lying. Like a pig.”

Lonely at home and bullied at school, Oskar only has a Rubik’s cube and his imagination for company. Then Eli moves in next door. Despite Eli’s odd odour of infected bandages and dead-dog, the teenagers develop a powerful and unusual friendship. But when a butchered body is found in a nearby forest, Oskar slowly unravels the truth about Eli and their strange bond is stretched to breaking point.

An international cult classic, Let The Right One In made its Manchester stage debut at Halloween. Adapted from John Ajvide Lindqvist’s cult novel by Jack Thorne (His Dark Materials, Harry Potter And Th Cursed Child, Kiri) and directed by the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan, this is a compelling and unnerving coming of age story like no other.
