Tony Award winners Jack Thorne and John Tiffany (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), along with Obie Award winner Steven Hoggett, have entertained audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with their exhilarating, cutting-edge brand of theatrical storytelling. Now they bring us a supernatural thriller that’s part brutal vampire myth and part coming-of-age romance. Oskar, a bullied boy from a broken home, and Eli, a young girl who moves in next door and rarely leaves the house, become devoted friends. When their neighborhood is haunted by a series of mysterious murders, a shocking truth tests Oskar and Eli’s growing love.
Produced in association with Marla Rubin Productions and Bill Kenwright.
A romance and a fairytale and a thriller and a chiller and a pretty thoughtful meditation on difference.
The gasp, so rarely heard in the theatre, rings out often here. First-rate… situated on the slipway between dream and daily life… a mesmerising evening.
