Following a sell-out tour and run at the Royal Court, the National Theatre of Scotland bring their acclaimed production of Let The Right One In to the West End’s Apollo Theatre for a limited season from 26 March 2014.

Exciting newcomers Rebecca Benson and Martin Quinn will reprise their critically acclaimed roles as Eli and Oskar. Other cast members include, Graeme Dalling, Angus Miller, Cristian Ortega and Susan Vidler.
The play features music by Ólafur Arnalds, lighting design by Chahine Yavroyan, sound design by Gareth Fry and special effects design by Jeremy Chernick.
Let The Right One In marks National Theatre of Scotland’s West End debut and is produced by Marla Rubin Productions and Bill Kenwright.
Oskar is a lonely, bullied teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate on the edge of town. When a young girl called Eli moves in next door, Oskar finds a kindred spirit and the two become devoted friends. Eli doesn’t go to school and never leaves her flat in the daytime. She has also been a teenager for a very long time…
Coinciding with Eli’s arrival, a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders begin to rock the neighbourhood.
