'Let the Right One In' Sinks Its Teeth Into London Stage Adaptation


Let the Right One In

Recent horror films don't get much more impressive than 2008's Swedish vampire flick Let the Right One In, which told the beautiful and haunting love story of Oskar, a human boy, and Eli, an undead blood-sucking girl. The film was adapted from a 2004 novel of the same title, by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and now the romantic tale of vampire love is set for another adaptation, this time taking the form of a stage play.

Let the Right One In opens at London's Apollo Theatre on March 26th, which comes hot on the heels of a sell out run at the Royal Court Theatre, also in London. Adapted for the stage by BAFTA award winning writer Jack Thorne, and directed by Tony Award winner John Tiffany, the play serves as a re-imagining of the novel, taking the darker elements of the story and turning them into a "deeply chilling piece."

I'm not typically a play kind of guy, but I find it hard not to be excited about one that promises "dark, graphic horror"!
