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

It’s back! Your favorite Scottish family is coming round again as the Boston Bastards plunge into the hearty world of tragedy at The Rockwell in Somerville 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 Boston this fall.

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 The Rockwell in 2019.

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:

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.

Tyler Rosati

Finally after 7 long years of toiling with Shit-faced Shakespeare, Tyler has achieved the rank of “One of the giants!” of the company. Well done! Took a lot of work and far too many bottles of that shitty, bubbly peach stuff he drinks.

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.

Brett Milanowski

This is where we would write something nice and witty about Brett…Give us a minute…It would really help if there WAS anything nice and witty about Brett…

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.

Liz Hartford

Liz is not the hero this company wants but is indeed the hero that it needs- especially when it comes to stepping into a last minute Benvolia performance. Ask her about her Purim Puppet Show and this Silly Lizzy guarantees a good time.

Raisa Hoffman

Raisa is “a little bit psychic”. We’ve never had cause to doubt this as thee told us about it long before we even asked. Spooky, eh?! Despite spending 90% of her working life on an exercise bike she has, somehow, maintained the grace & control of a recently tranquilized gazelle. Raisa acts for Shit-faced Shakespeare and can speak backwards on command. Spooky, eh?!
