LET THE RIGHT ONE IN

Ended 27 Sep 2014 after 5 months

The gasp, so rarely heard in the theatre, rings out often here. First-rate- situated on the slipway between dream and daily life - a mesmerising evening.

Will you open the door

In the wintry ethereal beauty of Jack Thorne's celebrated adaptation of Let The Right One In, it's not just Oskar's weird new neighbour Eli that is bathed in silver birch twilight. Critically acclaimed across the board, this staging of the cult Swedish novel/film about a boy who finds out his new friend may be more than meets the eye, and much older than 11 years old, is a divine treat for the eyes, ears and soul.

On the dreary housing estate where Oskar lives with his flawed parents, the status quo of downtrodden misery is rocked by a series of sinister killings, spilling blood onto the snowy ground, and mystifying the residents and the police.

But could Oskar be on to the perpetrator. Striking up a strange friendship with his reclusive neighbour, he learns more about life and death than he set out to in this coming of age story, with a supernatural (but subtle) difference.

A haunting, heart-breaking theatrical masterpiece, Let The Right One In has all the makings of a clever and moving hit, that will elicit gasps long after you've left the stalls.
