Having wowed audiences at the National Theatre, The Ocean at the End of the Lane heads to the West End.
I reckon we could all use a little escape from reality right about now, couldn’t we? For pure escapist theatre, nothing on the London stage rivals The Ocean at the End of the Lane, a magical romp based on the best-selling Neil Gaiman novel. Having made quite the splash at the National Theatre last year, it’s now transferring to the Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End on October 31st, and we’ve got the tickets right here.

Telling the story of a man returning to his childhood home, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a breathlessly imaginative work which encompasses magic, ancient forces, and memories of childhood. When a pond becomes an ocean, a boy and his friend Lettie will have to step into a perilous world and face down entities which threaten to destroy everything…
It’s dashing exciting stuff, and with a host of strong reviews behind it – The Guardian proclaimed it “a dynamic and quirky stage spectacular” – the West End transfer is no surprise. You’ll need to wait until October 31st to see it, but it’s never too early to get your tickets!
