New dates have been announced for the West End transfer of the National Theatre’s production of The Ocean At The End Of The Lane at the Duke Of York’s Theatre, London.
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.
