Who are we?
Box House Theatre are a professional theatre company who specialise in the performance practice of Platform Theatre. Our aim is to create theatre that utilises the physical actors' skills and attributes rather than relying on the assistance of technical elements.
We stand as proof that impressive theatre should not be restricted to budgets, resources and opportunity, and that “boundary pushing theatre” is born from imagination and creativity alone.
We believe there is much to learn through our approach to theatre and we aim to establish ourselves both within the theatre industry and drama education sector to bring new and innovative ways of theatre creation.
Our style is not for one, but for all.
Alongside our professional theatre productions, Box House Theatre also extend to drama education and institutions through our workshops. We provide the tools and techniques to develop the creative independence of young theatre makers by extracting our knowledge and expertise from our professional theatre creations.
There is a demand within educational sectors for our way of creation to be implemented to the next generation of theatre makers.
Box House aim to break down the traditional approach to teaching. Knowing there is a way to transfer theatre and drama practices to the classroom we are making education more accessible and interactive whilst assisting young people's learning through the use of theatre.
