Part tour, part play, part augmented reality experience, PLAY THIS is an invitation to explore Hamilton through a series of site-specific audio dramas. Each iteration is found in a collision of storytelling, history, place, and immersive theatre. PLAY THIS isn’t a traditional audio guide or podcast. Each experience is geo-located to its site which turns the series into a bit of a treasure hunt! With magical augmented reality elements, music, fairies, and ghost stories PLAY THIS offers something for the whole family.
