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 seven 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.

Box Clever is a registered company with charitable status. The company is a Living Wage Employer and a member of the Independent Theatre Council and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Box Clever is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation which means funding thanks to taxpayers and National Lottery players which plays a huge part in supporting our work.
