Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane (Duke of York's Theatre, West End)
It is great getting back to the theatre – there is nothing quite like the experience and this is certainly one to go to if you like a full-on fantasy fiction experience.
Following a sold out run at the National Theatre, the acclaimed production of The Ocean at the End of the Lane has transferred to the West End. Neil Gaiman is a multi-skilled writer, not just an icon in the mystery fiction world but also established in producing comic books, graphic novels, non-fiction and film. His imagination is, to be honest, rambling and clever and scary and impressive in equal parts and the adaptation of this novel as a stage play was a challenge well executed.
