Beyond the Blue is a play written by children in response to the refugee crisis.

About the show

Toyland is at war. Refusing the Evil Queen and her army, four toys embark on a quest for a new home. From a sea-monster border-guard to a Samaritan penguin, the toys meet smugglers and strange creatures on their search for a place of peace and belonging.

Beyond the Blue is about finding hope in a world that’s crumbling around us. It looks at one of the most urgent issues of our time – the displacement of so many children – through the eyes of children. It was written by children in the UK wondering what it might be like to cross borders and look for a new home.

Original concept commissioned by Omnibus Theatre.

About Cut the Cord

Cut the Cord questions the world we live in by turning it upside down. They explore political issues through bold visual narratives and movement, unlocking the physical life of a text. Their work focuses on new international writing, particularly Scandinavian, and the crossover between science and imagination, questioning what it means to be human.

Other productions include I Run (Vault Festival), Endless Second (Theatre503), Kinder K (The Bunker).
