SHIT-FACED SHAKESPEARE is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 40,000 eager theatre goers across the UK. Having successfully completed multiple sell-out runs of the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, the show has made its way stateside and has been enjoying a smashingly successful run in Boston since April and will debut this spring in London’s West End. With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same.
“Shit-Faced Shakespeare” seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist–reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.
