Direct your own Shakespeare production

Direct your own Shakespeare production of Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Create a scene from two of Shakespeare's most loved plays, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with our new interactive video platform. Using film samples and effects, you can control a range of elements, including casting, setting, costumes, acting style and music.

You can set A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a Tudor mansion, East End warehouse and on stage at the Old Vic. Or you can 'mix' the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet filmed in India with a Bollywood feel. The choice is yours.

We have collaborated with the Old Vic Theatre and acclaimed Indian director Roysten Abel on Mix the Play as part of Shakespeare Lives, our global programme of activities celebrating Shakespeare throughout 2016. Mix the Play is an interactive way for audiences to engages with Shakespeare’s works on the 400th anniversary of his death. 

Mix the Play is simple as well as intuitive, and it is easy to share your creations on social media. You do not require any prior knowledge of directing to get started.

Make your own scene now and experience Shakespeare as you never have before.
