Sh**-faced Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, award-winning, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is finally off on a UK tour with their version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shit-faced Shakespeare®is the hilarious combination of a completely serious adaptation of a Shakespearean classic, with the addition of a completely shit-faced cast member.
With one person from the cast selected at random and given four hours to drink before every show, we present to you classical theatre as it was always meant to be seen: with a gin in one hand, a cup of wine in the other and a flagon of ale at the ready. What could possibly go wrong?
This is your chance to see a truly unique adaption of a play Samuel Pepys called “the most insipid ridiculous play that I ever saw in my life” – things are bound to get more ridiculous once the cast crack open the wine…
Outrageously raucous and completely unpredictable, Sh*t-faced Shakespeare®has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 350,000 eager theatre goers across the UK, US, and Australia. Having successfully completed multiple sell-out runsof the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, the group made their way stateside in 2015 to Boston and have been enjoying smashingly successful runs on both sides of the pond since.
