We are delighted to announce that St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn will present the American premiere of our critically acclaimed South Bank Sky Arts award-winning production Let the Right One In, 20 January – 15 February, 2015.
The production, which had its world premiere at Dundee Rep Theatre in 2013, will reunite Tony and Olivier award-winning Director, John Tiffany, with the National Theatre of Scotland for whom he was Associate Director until 2012.
The American Premiere is presented by St. Ann’s with the National Theatre of Scotland, by arrangement with Bill Kenwright and Marla Rubin Productions Ltd, in association with piece by piece productions.
Let The Right One In, adapted for the stage by writer Jack Thorne from John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Swedish novel and screenplay of the film of the same name, has garnered great critical acclaim with successful runs at Dundee Rep Theatre, the Royal Court Theatre and the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End. In 2014 it won the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Best Theatre.
Let the Right One In is the National Theatre of Scotland’s sixth presentation of work in New York. Previous productions include Black Watch and Beautiful Burnout at St. Ann’s Warehouse, as well as The Bacchae (Lincoln Center Festival), Macbeth (Lincoln Center Festival and Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre) and The Wolves in the Walls (New Victory Theater).
Let the Right One In is a tender, funny and brutal love story following the burgeoning relationship between Oskar, a lonely, bullied teenage boy and Eli, a centuries-old, young vampire who befriends him.
The world-class creative team behind the production includes director, John Tiffany, a Tony and Olivier award-winning director, with associate direction from Tony Award-nominee, Steven Hoggett. Both bring their trademark physicality and lyricism to this new adaptation by the two-time BAFTA Award-winning writer Jack Thorne. The production features original music by BAFTA Award-winning Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds, set design by Tony Award-winner Christine Jones, lighting design by Chahine Yavroyan, sound design by Olivier Award-winner Gareth Fry and special effects design by Jeremy Chernick.
This production has received additional funds from The New York Theater Program of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, NYSCA and the NYC Dept of Cultural Affairs.
