The play is based on the Swedish novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and has been adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne. It is produced by Marla Rubin Productions, alongside Bill Kenwright, the Royal Court Theatre and the National Theatre of Scotland, marking the company's first West End production.
