Learning Resources

NT Learning gives everyone the chance to discover new skills and to experience the excitement of theatre-making, through inspiring projects at the National Theatre, in schools and with people of all ages across the UK and at touring venues. Through online resources we open up theatre-making at the National to students across the world.

Free DOWNLOADABLE Resource Pack

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is an entertaining and engaging live theatre experience for students and teachers.

An extensive learning resource is available to support your visit to the theatre, which is designed to enhance students' understanding of the production, with links to Drama and English.

The pack includes opportunities to respond to the production for the Live Production element of GCSE and/or A Level Drama & Theatre. It also provides information about the production, interviews with the creative team, and ways in which it can inform and inspire devised or scripted work in schools or colleges.

‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane should be on every teacher's must-see list. It is an outstanding new resource for the Drama classroom which provides endless opportunities for follow-up study. It easily matches The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in its appeal to young people and deserves to make a big and long-lasting impact on drama education.'
