Written by Jack Thorne, produced in collaboration with Actors’ Shakespeare Project • Directed by Christopher V. Edwards “I must be gone and live or stay and die.” - William Shakespeare and Jack Thorne from Let the Right One In. An enchanting and eerie vampire myth and coming-of-age love story, adapted from the bestselling novel and award-winning film. As the play explores the monstrosity of humans and the humanity of monsters, we are reminded that love transcends gender and our physical being. Oskar is a bullied, lonely teenage boy living with his mother at the edge of town when a number of sinister killings rock the neighborhood. Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the apartment by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time.
