The Ocean at the End of the Lane
‘The National Theatre at its very best.’ (Daily Telegraph)
Following a phenomenal 4-weeks in December, the National Theatre‘s major new stage adaptation The Ocean at the End of the Lane returns to The Lowry for one week only this October due to overwhelming demand.
From the imagination of Neil Gaiman, best-selling author of Coraline, Good Omens and The Sandman, comes this thrilling adventure of fantasy, myth and friendship, a five-star spectacular which blends magic with memory in a tour-de-force of storytelling that takes audiences on an epic journey to a childhood once forgotten.
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 remarkable friend Lettie claimed it wasn’t a pond, but an ocean – a place where everything is possible…
