About Us

Who We Are

Black Box Theatre is a St Albans based theatre company, founded by Amber Williams, Freya Mitchell and Emily Carhart in 2016. We aim to create exciting and exceptionally engaging theatre, ranging from from older and more traditional plays, to contemporary plays to devised pieces. We like to challenge conventional uses of space within theatre to intensify the atmosphere and make any theatre we produce feel authentic.
