We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
From the imagination of Neil Gaiman, best-selling author of Coraline, Good Omens and The Sandman (now a major Netflix series), comes the National Theatre’s major new stage adaptation of The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
This five-star spectacular from the producers of War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a thrilling adventure of fantasy, myth and friendship, taking 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.

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.
