THEATRE: Let the RIGHT ONE IN

February 3, 2017 @ 8pm

The National Theatre of Scotland is bringing their adaptation of Let the Right One In to Seattle. Last year their original ballad The Strange Undoings of Prudencia Hart had co-curators Phil Lacey, Ahren Buhmann, and Margaret Toomey ready to run away to Scotland.

W/P has organized a block of tickets for the Friday, February 3 performance at The Moore theatre. With our group discount, these second and third row tickets are $64.00. Want to join us? Let us know!

From the show's website:

A stage adaptation by Jack Thorne
Based on the Swedish novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist
Directed by John Tiffany

Presented by the National Theatre of Scotland by arrangement with Marla Rubin Productions Ltd and Bill Kenwright

“I’m not that. I live on blood. But I am not…that…Can I come in?”

Oskar is a lonely bullied teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town. Eli, a girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day.

Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two quickly become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know however, is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time... As their friendship deepens, as a series of sinister killings shock the neighbourhood.

A must-see major production, Let the Right One In is a truly rare piece of theatre, an enchanting, brutal vampire myth and a coming-of-age love story.


Tony and Olivier Award-winning director John Tiffany (Black Watch, Once) directs this major new production by Jack Thorne with Olivier Award-winning associate director Steven Hoggett (Black Watch, Beautiful Burnout, American Idiot).
