Mix the Play platform as part of Shakespeare Lives

Mix the Play

Direct your own production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream Mix the Play is an interactive video platform that sees the British Council collaborate with the Old Vic Theatre.  We invite you to create a scene from one of Shakespeare's most loved plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 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.
