About Us


Box Clever is an award-winning, writer-led theatre company dedicated to the creation of contemporary theatre for young people.


For over twenty years, Box Clever has reached thousands of young people across the UK and beyond with artistic productions and workshops that are imaginative, exciting, inspiring and which engage our young audiences fully. Our mission is to  bring exciting theatre to young people – the audiences of the future- and to involve  them in plays, both as audience members, participants and co-creators. We aim to bring vividly to life, through theatre, their world and issues that are completely relevant to them, whether it’s safety on the roads, relationships, bullying or subjects related to their education.

Last year we performed to over 40,000 young people and adults in 185 schools and 9 venues, giving 227 performances and 177 workshops.

Box Clever is a registered company with charitable status and a member of the Independent Theatre Council. Box Clever is based at the Oval House Theatre in London.
