What is The Ocean at the End of the Lane about?

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.
