About the show
Adapted for the stage by BAFTA winning Jack Thorne (Skins, This is England ’86), Let the Right One In is set in the Scottish Highlands and follows lonely boy Oskar, who is bullied at school, lives in a broken home and is desperate for friendship. When a series of brutal killings rock the neighbourhood, Oskar attempts to find the perpetrator. Striking up a strange friendship with the mysterious girl from across the street, the pair discover a deep connection that leads to a shocking truth, causing more blood to be spilled on the snowy grounds.
