If you are looking to witness an inspiring play that blends passion, isolation, horror and legend, then look no further than Let the Right One In, soon to be shown at the Apollo Theatre.
Let the Right One In comes to the Apollo
The National Theatre of Scotland’s hit play will re-open at the Apollo Theatre in March. This chilling tale of loneliness, love and revenge, will run from 26 March until 27 September, 2014.
The play is based on the best-selling Swedish novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. The sombre plot involves a series of brutal killings that take place place in a working class suburb of Stockholm. The story is centred on the relationship between a lonely 12-year-old boy, Oskar, and an equally as troubled girl called Eli. As the two young misfits bond, the story focuses on the darker side of humanity, as the tale of love, loyalty and revenge unravels. In 2010 the book was made into an acclaimed Swedish film of the same name.
Blood and gore
The schoolboy Oskar is played by Scottish actor Martin Quinn. Eli, the centuries-old vampire who befriends Oskar is played by Rebecca Benson. Talking about the Let the Right One In production, the 24-year-old actress said:
“Fans of blood and gore will not be disappointed. I’ve got blood in my mouth all the time – it’s bleeding out of my head.”
With so much blood and gory scenes on show the play has been described as being “for adults and fearless teens aged 13+”.
The production is directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner John Tiffany, who directed both the Broadway and London productions of ‘Once the Musical.
Let the Right One In will be the first production at the Apollo Theatre following recent refurbishment. The play will commence at the Apollo Theatre on March 26 with a Press Night taking place on April 7, 2014.
