Let The Right One In
Author(s): Adaptation by Jack Thorne based on the novel and film by Jon Ajvide Lindqvist
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.
This international cult classic makes its Manchester stage debut this Halloween. Adapted from John Ajvide Lindqvist’s cult novel by Jack Thorne and directed by the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan.
