The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Following a four-week run at The Lowry, the National Theatre’s production of The Ocean at the End of the Lane returns to Salford this October.

Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, adapted by Joel Horwood and directed by Katy Rudd, this adventure of fantasy, myth and friendship is currently on tour visiting 29 towns and cities, across the UK and Ireland.

Assisted performances are available. At The Lowry, a sign language interpreted performance will be on October 5 at 2PM and audio described performance on October 5 at 7:30PM.
