“Is this a lager I see before me”

The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is back with their hilarious combination of an entirely serious adaptation of Macbeth, with an entirely shit-faced cast member. 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.

“A great night out to get properly Pucked up. It’s what Willy would have wanted” 4* (Time Out)

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.

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:

Beth-Louise Priestley

Beth-Louise holds the record for the most drunk shows performed by quite a way... you could say she really is a professional drunk. She joined Shit-faced Shakespeare® and hasn't left. So please if anyone was impressed with her performance this evening please hire her... we aren't joking.

Lewis Ironside

If the Devil is evil and Einstein a genius, imagine them conceiving a baby while on acid and we present you Lewis. Lewis along with his besty mate, Chris, came up with the whole concept of SFS. He's currently living out in Tulsa, in a mansion, complete with both swimming pool and pool table. Bastard.
