We have to admit, this is not our usual booking, but we were blown away by this simply sensational show! Currently touring the UK we had the pleasure of seeing this at our very own Theatre Royal in Plymouth this week! A show not to be missed, catch it when it is near you and you will not regret it. The only reason we have marked this show down from 100 was the fact the music seemed over loud, it didn’t ruin it but just felt a little too much.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a dark almost thriller type production with multiple special effects that will leave you wondering how on earth they did it. The one thing that shines out in this show is that it captivates the audience, and no matter what age you are there is something for everyone! It showcases the actors stunning ability to take you on the journey with them. The fourth wall was very truly broken and you felt totally immersed in the production.

No wonder this show has 5 star reveiws from some of the best theatre critics out there, we certainly cannot fault it and we totally think this is a MUST SEE SHOW! If there is one show you book this year, please make sure it is this one.

One of the few plays we have seen where there was an instant standing ovation at the end! Well and truly deserved! Thank you National Theatre!
