A Crash box is a sound effect device which reproduces a crash or collision sound effect. Commonly used in theatre and plays, they consist of a large metal or wood crate in which glassware, china crockery, wood blocks and/or other delicate objects are placed. The items may or may not be broken. Crash boxes are used to recreate the sounds of a crash, collision or glass breakage in theatre. To recreate the sound effects, crash boxes are dropped from a height backstage. A crash box is generally preferred to a recorded sound effect because it is perceived as more realistic.

Crashbox Theater Company strives to be a vibrant part of the theater world and contribute to its growth by producing new works from emerging and established playwrights.  The artistic life of our company thrives on the incredibly brave playwrights we produce, the risks that they challenge us to take and fostering theater that ignites the soul and creates an ongoing dialogue. We encourage our audiences to be as adventurous as the work we intend to produce.
To examine the beautiful human struggle through all its awkward fragments.
