The Spice Box

Set within the Elizabethan House, ‘The Spice Box’ moved audiences across the centuries – from the intimacy of the family kitchen to the magnitude of global exploration; immersing them in sounds, smells and tastes of the past.

‘The Spice Box’ was a Barbican Theatre production created in partnership with Plymouth City Council’s Arts and Heritage Service and performed by Company b Theatre from May – July 2015. The project was supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and Plymouth Culture.
