Let the Right One In

Let The Right One In London


Let the Right One In opened at the Apollo Theatre on March 26th 2014, marking the first show of the year at the venue.

Let the Right One in is an onstage adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Swedish horror novel and film, reworked for the stage by BAFTA award winning writer Jack Thorne. Like the original novel of the same name, the play is a heartfelt love story between two children, one of whom turns out to be a vampire…

The onstage re-imagination of the tale, now set in the brisk Scottish Highlands, has taken the darker elements of the original novel, resulting in a deeply chilling piece.

This tale of blind love in the face of all odds arrives in the West End following a sell out run at the Royal Court Theatre in Sloane Square, London.

Cast and Creative

The show is adapted for stage by Jack Thorne (This is England 86, Skins) and directed by Tony Award Winning director John Tiffany.

Cast includes the much praised Martin Quinn and Rebecca Benson, who reprise their original roles as Oskar and Eli.  Clive Mendus plays Hakan, the Eli’s blood thirsty companion.

Veteran West End producer Bill Kenwright presents the show alongside Marla Rubin Productions and the National Theatre of Scotland.
