We have an array of issue based plays

Our Newest piece "A Life Not A Hashtag"

Inspired by the Winterborne View scandel in 2012 and focuses on the Care and Treatment Review process (CTR).

Telling real story's from real people through MiXiT's unique style of issue driven drama. 

Mixit are known internationally for devising a brand of issue driven drama that reminds us that people with

Learning disabilities are people first and that they have the same rights, hopes and dreams as the rest of

society. People with learning disabilities are often side-lined and have greatly reduced life chances and

expectations. Many are treated as second-class-citizens and are stuck in statutory or private systems that are

inflexible and often damaging. What we refer to as "service-land"


Recently, 'service-land' has hit the media, with people  suffering abuse  and even dying in Assessment and

Treatment Units up and down the UK. The Winterbourne Scandal should have been a catalyst for change in

the way we support vulnerable people in our communities and yet people continue to be hurt or die and little

has changed. In this day and age how can we sit back and let this happen?!
