The National Theatre of Scotland’s sell-out production of vampire horror Let the Right One In comes to the Apollo Theatre.

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.

Winner of this year’s South Bank Sky Arts theatre award, this major new must-see production is an enchanting, brutal vampire myth and coming-of-age love story.

Directed by Tony Award-winner John Tiffany (Once, The Pass), Let The Right One In is adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne based on John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Swedish novel and screenplay.

The auditorium features a stunning new cyclorama designed by Christine Jones which takes the world of the play into the auditorium itself, adding a thrilling and immersive dimension to the event.

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.

John Tiffany to direct Harry Potter The Play?
According to Baz Bamigboye in the Daily Mail today, Friday 9 May 2014, director John Tiffany is being lined up to direct a new stage play based on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter character. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="240"] John Tiffany to direct new Harry Potter play?[/caption] Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling is believed to have chosen the director she would like to collaborate with on a brand new stage play about Harry Potter's early years. Director John Tiffany is believed to have been approached for the project, alongside writer Jack Thorne. John Tiffany has become a major West End and Broadway director, with credits including a 2014 Tony nomination for The Glass Menagerie on Broadway, and current West End hits Once at the Phoenix Theatre and Let The Right One In at the Apollo Theatre. He recently directed The Pass starring Russell Tovey at the Royal Court, and scored 4 Olivier Awards for his production of Black Watch for the National Theatre of Scotland. Jack Thorne is a writer who adapted Let The Right One In for the stage. His long list of TV writing credits, which have earned him a BAFTA, include Skins, Cast-offs, This Is England '86, This Is England '88 and The Fades. Theatre work includes When You Cure Me and 2 May 1997 at the Bush Theatre, Fanny and Faggot at the Finborough Theatre, Stacy at the Arcola Theatre and Trafalgar Studios, Burying Your Brother in the Pavement at the National, Bunny in Edinburgh and on tour and an adaptation of Friedrich Duerrenmatt's The Physicists at the Donmar Warehouse. The new play is believed to be about Harry Potter's early years and includes the story of his parents. Baz speculates that the play could be in the West End by late 2015. Rowling will collaborate on the show but will not write it, and will co-produce the show with Harry Potter movie producers Warner Bros, alongside West End producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender.
