National Theatre

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.

The running time is 2 hours and 20 mins, including an interval. This production is suitable for ages 12+. This production contains scenes that some people may find distressing and strobe light effects. West End casting to be announced.
