The Ocean At The End Of The Lane
After many long years, a man returns to his childhood home: a farmhouse in Sussex where he used to play outdoors. Standing beside a fish pond, he is transported to his 12th birthday when his imaginative friend Lettie called the pond an ocean... Nose diving headfirst into an enchanting world, the pair's survival rests in their ability to battle dark ancient forces that will stop at nothing to dismantle everything that surrounds them.
Uncover the magic of Neil Gaiman's best-selling novel as you've never experienced it before: live on the West End stage.
The play was adapted for the stage by Joel Horwood and is directed by Katy Rudd. It promises to be an exhilarating adventure filled with masterful storytelling and jaw-dropping visuals.
Neil Gaiman is perhaps best known for his many popular novels and children's books, including Coraline and its subsequent film exploring the Freudian notion of the uncanny valley, Good Omens, Stardust, Neverwhere, American Gods, Anansi Boys, InterWorld, The Graveyard Book, The Silver Dream and Eternity's Wheel. He has also enjoyed overwhelming success for his comic book series The Sandman.
Gaiman is the first author to ever win both the Carnegie and Newberry medals for the same work: his 2008 novel The Graveyard Book. His novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane was voted by the British National Book Awards as Book of the Year and is now a feature-length play.
