Neil Gaiman's The Ocean At The End Of The Lane is coming to the Bord Gáis
We can't wait!
The critically acclaimed adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean At The End Of The Lane will have its Irish Premiere next Spring at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
Directed by Katy Rudd (Camp Siegfried) and adapted by Joel Horwood (Skins, I Want My Hat Back), the first major stage adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s work is a thrilling adventure of fantasy, myth and friendship, which blends magic with memory in a tour-de-force of storytelling that takes audiences on an epic journey to a childhood once forgotten and the darkness that lurks at the very edge of it.
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 remarkable friend Lettie claimed it wasn't a pond, but an ocean – a place where everything is possible...
Plunged into a magical world, their survival depends on their ability to reckon with ancient forces that threaten to destroy everything around them.
Speaking with us, Writer Neil Gaiman said:
“The Ocean at the End of the Lane is about memory, magic, family. It’s about who you were and who you are. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever been involved in.
It’s not like anything else you’ll ever see at the theatre. The Ocean at the End of the Lane has its own theatrical magic. It's why happy people tell you that they cried while watching it, it's why it becomes a dreamlike experience in memory, it gets bigger the further inside you follow it.
Like a duck pond that contains an ocean that holds the universe…”
This astounding production will run from the 28th March until 1st April 2023 and tickets (priced from €18.50) are available to buy now.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is suitable for ages 12+.
