The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is touring the UK with one of Shakespeare's most loved plays: Romeo and Juliet. Shit-faced Shakespeare is the hilarious combination of an entirely serious adaptation of a Shakespearean classic, with an entirely shit-faced cast member. With one cast member 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 in the other... What could possibly go wrong? 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.

Sh*t-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely sh*t-faced cast member. Outrageous raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 200,000 eager theatre goers across the UK and US. Having successfully completed multiple sell-out runs of the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, the Magnificent Bastards made their way stateside in 2015 to Boston and have been enjoying a smashingly successful run since. In addition to Boston, Austin, Atlanta, and Minneapolis, all have a crop of Bastards on hand to delight you each weekend. Sh*t-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.
