Oskar is a bullied, lonely teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town, when a spate of sinister killings rocks the neighbourhood. Eli is the young 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 become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn't know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time... Let The Right One In is a dark and visceral coming-of-age vampire love story. 

Alex is thrilled to be directing one of his all time favourite plays for his fourth production at Institute of the Arts, after Lord of the Flies, Citysong and A Monster Calls
