Sh!t-faced Shakespeare presents Macbeth

The production will feature a rolling cast with the actors performing different parts each night.

Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most famous works and arguably, the greatest play ever written.  It’s a dramatic epic about greed, ambition and the heights and depths of the human condition.  Now, imagine it being performed by a rotating cast, one of who is completely inebriated?   That is the very essence of Sh!t-faced Shakespeare as they prepare to the take their unique interpretation of Macbeth on a national tour this autumn.

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare presents: Macbeth is a side-splitting combination of a faithful adaptation of this Shakespearean classic, complete with one worse-for-wear cast member.  Every night before the show, an actor is given four hours to “wet the whistle” by consuming as much alcohol as they can get their hands on.  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 lined up next.

Featuring wasted witches, boozy best friends, hammered hell-hounds, unhinged wives and enough crapulous kings to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, this is Shakespearean theatre as you’ve never experienced it before…  What could possibly go wrong?

The production will feature a rolling cast with the actors performing different parts each night.
