THE National Theatre of Scotland’s hit vampire horror Let The Right One In is to head to New York.

The company has confirmed it will be joining forces with award-winning director John Tiffany to revive its adaptation of the cult Swedish novel and film.

The production was launched at Dundee Rep last year and went on to enjoy two acclaimed runs in London, at the Royal Court Theatre and the Apollo, in the West End this year, winning the best theatre prize at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards.

Let The Right One In, which will be staged at St Ann’s Warehouse, in Brooklyn, from 20 January-15 February, is the latest NTS production to be taken to New York, following the likes of Black Watch, The Bacchae and Beautiful Burnout.

The play explores the touching relationship between a lonely and bullied teenage boy and a mysterious young female vampire who befriends him.
