The Ocean at the End of the Lane
‘The National at its very best. Spellbinding’
Following a sold out run at the National Theatre, the acclaimed production of The Ocean at the End of the Lane transfers to the West End from October 2021.
Adapted by Joel Horwood from the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman, this spectacular and thrilling adventure directed by Katy Rudd, is a theatrical tour de force of imagination and storytelling.
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.
West End casting is to be announced.
Performances take place at:
Duke of York’s Theatre
