Ocean back by popular demand

The National Theatre’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane will now top and tail its mammoth 29-date UK tour at Salford's Lowry Theatre.

The reception in Salford for the show's four-week premiere run was such that the National has agreed to extend the tour for an extra week, so it will be back from October 4-7.

Head of the Lowry’s theatre operations, Steve Cowton, said: “We were absolutely blown away by the response from audiences at Christmas and we're delighted the National Theatre has agreed to extend their tour by a week so we can bring it back."

This first major stage adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s work takes audiences on an epic journey to a childhood once forgotten – and the darkness that lurks at the edge of it.

Returning to his childhood home, a man finds himself standing beside the pond 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...

Assisted performances are available at every venue across the tour. At The Lowry, a sign language-interpreted performance will take place on October 5 at 2pm and an audio described performance at 7:30pm.
