A dark and visceral coming-of-age vampire love story, based on the acclaimed novel and film.

Oskar is a bullied, lonely, teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town, when a spate of sinister killings rocks the neighbourhood.

Eli is the young 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 become devoted friends.

What Oskar doesn't know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time'

Jack Thorne's adaptation of <i>Let The Right One In</i> premiered in June 2013 at the Dundee Rep Theatre in a production by the National Theatre of Scotland, before transferring to London's Royal Court Theatre in November 2013.
