Let the right one in image

Lonely at home and bullied at school, Oskar only has a Rubik’s cube and his imagination for company. Then Eli moves in next door. Despite Eli’s odd odour of infected bandages and dead-dog, the teenagers develop a powerful and unusual friendship. But when a butchered body is found in a nearby forest, Oskar slowly unravels the truth about Eli and their strange bond is stretched to breaking point.
An international cult classic, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN makes its Manchester stage debut this Halloween. Adapted from John Ajvide Lindqvist’s cult novel by Jack Thorne (HIS DARK MATERIALS, HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD, KIRI) and directed by the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan, this is a compelling and unnerving coming of age story like no other.
