The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Following a sold out run at the National Theatre, this acclaimed production transfers to the West End this October

“When this opened at the National Theatre in December the Telegraph critic asked “is this the new Curious Incident?” Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s 2013 novel, this is a cut above your normal family theatre production and well worth catching on the West End.”

Overview

Returning to his childhood home, a man finds himself standing beside the pond of the old Sussex farmhouse where he used to play. He’s transported to his 12th birthday when his friend Lettie claimed it wasn’t a pond, but an ocean… Plunged into a magical world, their survival depends on their ability to reckon with ancient forces that threaten to destroy everything around them.

Adapted from the best-selling Neil Gaiman novel by Joel Horwood and directed by Katy Rudd, this spectacular and thrilling adventure is a tour de force of imagination and storytelling.

Please note: This production contains scenes that some people may find distressing, and strobe lighting.

Tickets will go on sale in March!
