The production company co-founded by Vanessa-Faye to create plays which explore humanity's relationship with technology. Boileroom takes a laboratory approach in the rehearsal room, working with specialists from the fields of science and others who might not consider themselves artists, to encourage unexpected collaborations and performance.  

'The Terrific Electric' was an extraordinary collaboration between theatre makers and a surgeon, physicist, sculptor and a car mechanic. Supported by The Playground and Arts Council funding, it won the OSBTT award for innovative theatre and had a two week run at The Barbican Pit in 2007.

'Sanguine Night' was one of six winners of the Park Theatre's Script Accelerator, and is in development with a doctor and cultural experts with the Old Vic, OvalHouse and RADA festival.
