The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, award-winning, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is back in London with TWO new shows for 2018: The Merchant of Venice and 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?
