‘Romeo and Juliet’ Sh!tfaced Shakespeare tour

The Internationally acclaimed, and award-winning Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is back on the road.

Butsoft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet … has had too much ale and is seeing double.

The Internationally acclaimed, and award-winning Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is back on the road. And this time they are giving Romeo and Juliet their signature shit-faced twist as the cast attempt to navigate the bard’s fated love story with one drunk performer.

Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the hilarious combination of an entirely serious adaptation of a Shakespearean classic, with an entirely sh!t-faced cast member. With one cast member selected at random and given four hours to drink before every show, this is 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…

An age-old vendetta between two powerful families erupts into bloodshed. A group of masked Montagues gate-crash a Capulet party. A young lovesick Romeo Montague falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet. The two plan to marry, but their families ain’t having it. Then for reasons best known to herself Juliet follows the friar’s supremely ill-advised plot and fakes her own death. The rest of the story, as you no doubt know, does not go well for our ill-fated lovebirds.

Featuring sozzled star-crossed lovers, a tipsy Tybalt, muddled masquerade balls and squiffy street fights, audiences are invited to settle in for a pint (or two!) and raise a glass with Sh!t-faced Shakespeare®  as they present the classic combination of a Tetris-ed together Shakespeare script, a six pack of professional actors and a luge of booze. What could possibly go right?

Warning: Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is perfect for those wishing to add to their repertoire of colourful language and not for those who blush easily at the mere mention of the “F” word…
