“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.”

It’s back! Your favorite Boozed up Bard family is coming round again as the Magnificent Bastards plunge into the hearty world of tragedy at Byham Theater in Pittsburgh with their hit show Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth.

Upon hearing the weird sister’s prediction, Macbeth and his tiger wife take matters into their own hands and manage to burn down everything in their wake. Well, almost. Fair is foul and foul is fair in this tale of prophecy gone slightly off the rails. Perhaps we should add a bit of liquor to help the process along?

Featuring Shakespeare’s most lovable witches, ghostly best friends, hell-hounds, unhinged wives, enough dead kings to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, and lots of plaid, Scotland storms Pittsburgh this spring for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

Settle in for a pint (or two!) and raise a glass with us. Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the classic combination of a Tetris-ed together Shakespeare script, a six pack of professional actors and a luge flow of booze! What could possibly go right?

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

Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth is playing exclusively at Byham Theater in 2020.

Dramatis personæ

Shit-faced Shakespeare® features a cast of rotating players covering multiple roles over a run. You can, however, expect to see some of these Magnificent Bastards appearing in this production:

Josephine Elwood

Josephine "Josephine Elwood" Elwood is a goddamn theatrical institution! Do you have any idea how lucky you are to see her perform for you?! Did you know that she was nominated in 2015 for a Best Supporting Actress Award (for actresses appearing in plays (in a midsize theater (in the New England area)))? She came in 4th. One day Jojo hopes to be a runner-up in an even more specific category.

Laura Sullivan

Please do not adjust your hearing device, that's really how quiet Laura is...I know right! On a clear night with a still wind, Laura's dulcet tones can be heard gently wafting over Boston Harbor as far as Cape Town. Truly an acoustic wonder, Laura performs, produces, and directs for Shit-faced Shakespeare and is an original company member. One day she hopes to leave.

Lewis Ironside

Lewis is the creator of Shit-faced Shakespeare and an overall major twat. His wife is a neuroscientist and the entirety of Shit-faced Shakespeare loves her much more than him. It's not a competition so to speak, but we put them in a room together everyone definitely flocks to his genius, magical wife over him and his brooding face and tiny little haggis tongue. He'll be moving to Tulsa this summer so we won't have to worry about it too much longer.

Noah Simes

Deep in the jungle, there lurks a beast with a tongue as long as twelve smaller jungle creatures standing nose to tail. It uses this tongue to hunt small prey and to attract a mate during the rainy season. It has, according to scientists, the 2nd most prodigious tongue in nature. Noah is number one on that list. Noah acts for Shit-faced Shakespeare and is 'podcast famous'. He's got a long tongue.
