Light Box Theatre

Lightbox Theatre discovers and brings to life stories that are untold or overlooked.  We believe theatre has the power to create connection and give voice to people who feel unheard, reducing isolation and disadvantage. In addition to our professional shows we deliver workshops in local communities, mount shows in non-theatre spaces and give opportunities to people who might connect with our stories most to see our work for free and engage in our creative process.
