COMING MAY 2023
WILL YOU OPEN THE DOOR?
This quietly moving and spooky show from the Tony-winning minds behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child makes its West Coast premiere with Berkely Rep in spring 2023. Adapted from John Ajvide Lindqvist's cult novel, Jack Thorne provides the book, with direction from John Tiffany. Movement comes from Steven Hogget. Ethereal, compelling and unforgettable, the production premiered in London in 2014 where it was described by The Observer as "First-rate... situated on the slipway between dream and daily life... a mesmerizing evening".
What is the story?
On the dreary housing estate where Oskar lives with his preoccupied parents, the status quo of downtrodden misery is rocked by a series of sinister killings, spilling blood onto the snowy ground, and mystifying the residents and the police.
But could Oskar be on to the perpetrator? Striking up a strange friendship with his reclusive neighbor Eli, he learns more about life and death than he set out to in this coming-of-age story, with a supernatural (but subtle) difference. A haunting, heartbreaking theatrical masterpiece, Let The Right One In has all the makings of a clever and moving hit, that will elicit gasps long after you've left the stalls.
