Direct Your Own Production

Mix the Play is an interactive video platform that invites you to create a scene from two of Shakespeare's most loved plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet. Using film samples and effects, you can control a range of elements, including casting, setting, costumes, acting style and music.

The platform is simple and intuitive and it is easy to share your creations on social media. You do not require any prior knowledge of directing.
