Groundbreaking fantasy becomes stage realityDiscover Neil Gaiman’s darkly enchanting The Ocean at the End of the Lane when it transfers to the West End this October. The acclaimed author’s work is brought to dazzling life on stage, taking audiences on an exhilarating journey of nostalgia, memory, and fantasy.
When a man returns to his childhood home in Sussex, he finds himself drawn to an old farmhouse. In the grounds is a pond he used to play beside… but is it a pond, or an ocean? Transported back to a long summer when he was 12 years old, the man remembers his friend, Lettie, and their adventures in a world populated by ancient, destructive forces.
Adapted from Gaiman’s novel by Joel Horwood, The Ocean at the End of the Lane previously ran a limited season at the National Theatre, where it bewitched audiences with its spectacular sets and spellbinding story.
Combining fantasy, horror, and nostalgia, this brand new play is a thrilling exploration into the magical hidden depths of childhood. Get swept up in this incredible story with The Ocean at the End of the Lane tickets at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 26 October 2021.
