Lightbox Theatre discovers and brings to life stories that are untold or overlooked.

The company is one of New Diorama Theatre’s Emerging Companies.


From the revival of lost dramatic works and voices to the discovery of new ones we want to produce stories that:
– shed light on people, writers or situations that are overlooked
– illuminate and uplift
– might not yet be scripted
– are authentic and resonate with our world today

We aim to create exciting, high quality work that is ambitious in its scale and staging, from large cast plays in intimate spaces to unscripted works that might be performed in an unconventional setting.
Through our productions, community engagement and participation opportunities we aim to reach out to new audiences and to those who have little or no experience of theatre.


We believe that stories can be found in the everyday and that theatre:
– should be inclusive and accessible to everyone
– needs to reach out to new audiences
– has the power to build community and transform society


We want to expand people’s horizons and benefit the public by:
– bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together in a shared and rich experience
– reaching out to people who have no experience of theatre
– creating opportunities for participation (including young people, vulnerable adults and the elderly)
– endeavoring to create a better understanding of ourselves and others
