Let the Right One In

Jan. 5, 2018 - Jan. 29, 2018

The Swedish cult phenomenon Let The Right One In has been an acclaimed novel, two movies, a TV pilot—and now a dark and visceral stage production that makes its Midwest debut at The Ringwald Theatre .

Based on the 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne, Let The Right One In is a chilling, one-of-a-kind coming-of-age vampire love story. 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 neighborhood. 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...
