'gloriously imaginative..my defences crumbled'
The New York Times

We are Patch of Blue.

We are a multi award winning company creating fresh, exciting and touching devised theatre with live music that allows an audience to see the world through different eyes. We present our work at festivals and through international touring, and are supported by  Arts Council England. We are the recipient of the prestigious Grahame F. Smith Peace Foundation Award for promoting human rights through theatre, as well as the 'Best Theatre' and 'Critics Choice' awards at the Adelaide Festival. 

Based in London, we have performed across the world in theatres and festivals, and offer workshops for schools and groups. Our current play with music 'We Live By the Sea' has just enjoyed runs at the SoHo Playhouse Off Broadway, the Arts Theatre West End, and the Royal Croquet Club Australia. The show was nominated for a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival, chosen as 'Pick of the Fringe' in The Times, and picked as 'Top Theatre of 2016' in the New York Times. In Adelaide it was chosen as one of the Top 6 shows to see at the festival by the Guardian. Having toured China in September 2017 it will return to  Adelaide Festival in 2018, before opening the prestigious Brits Off Broadway season in New York.
