The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: National Theatre sell‐out smash‐hit transfers to the West End. 

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 this October.

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.
