Word By Word (2016)

Playwright:
Directed by:

This is no ordinary typewriter. It has been specially programmed to type out The Complete Works of Shakespeare, powered by Tweets. It is constantly searching live Tweets to find the relevant words to complete Shakespeare’s finest works. The typewriter can only type using words found on Twitter in real time. Ay, there’s the rub. Not all of Shakespeare’s words will be found on Twitter. When the typewriter stops we need you to Tweet the next words on the screen, using the hashtag #TheCompleteTweets, for the story to continue.
