It’s a chilling coming-of-age vampire story that’s gained cult status across the globe—now, Let the Right One In is finding a new home in Manchester. Described as both ‘enchanting and brutal, chilling and beautiful,’ Jack Thorne’s adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s 2004 novel is set to be an unforgettable theatrical experience.

When two teenage outsiders turn away from the adult world that is failing them, they discover solace in each other. One is a bullied, lonely teenage boy; the other a feral, isolated and dangerous vampire. Their chilling and unlikely friendship asks audiences to recognise and value the humanity in all of us (whilst scaring you silly).

Directed by Royal Exchange Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan and written by Jack Thorne (His Dark MaterialsHarry Potter and the Cursed Child), this is not to be missed.
