St. Ann’s Warehouse spotlights Vampires in Love
St. Ann’s Warehouse and the National Theatre of Scotland present the North American premiere of Let the Right One In, a brutal and tender vampire myth told through the turbulence of a coming-of-age romance. Oskar, a lonely boy from a broken home, is bullied at school and longing for friendship. Eli, the young girl who moves in next door, doesn’t attend school and rarely leaves home. When a series of mysterious killings plagues the neighborhood, these two young misfits, sensing in each other a kindred spirit, forge a deep connection. But the shocking truth about one of them tests their young friendship —and love— beyond all imaginable limits.
From the four star review in The New York Times: “And just when you thought you’d had your fill of young vampires in love, along comes a ravishing little romance of the undead that’s guaranteed to warm — and break — your heart, even as it chills your blood.”
