Founded in 2010, Crashbox has produced, commissioned and served in the development of new plays by emerging and established writers, holding playwrights as the heartbeat of our community.  

Our programming is focused on providing individualized resources and collaborative opportunities for each voice to grow in a safe and inclusive environment.  


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.
