About The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Matilda The Musical Logo

Neil Gaiman’s thrilling adventure of fantasy, myth and imagination returns to London!

Based on the internationally acclaimed novel by Neil Gaiman, the National Theatre’s smash-hit stage adaptation of The Ocean at the End of the Lane returns to the West End this October for seven weeks only.

Garnering more than 100 five-star reviews, this spectacular theatrical event is a tour de force of magic and storytelling. Adapted by Joel Horwood and directed by Katy Rudd, The Ocean at the End of the Lane 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 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.
