“Lord what fools these mortals be!”

Shit-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night’s Dream makes its triumphant return to Boston at The Rockwell Theater.

Four young lovers from ancient Greece find themselves lost in the woods at night with only a complex love quadrangle to keep them warm. Good job this place isn’t infested with randy fairies, eh? Let’s pour a glass of bubbly (or two!) and watch the hilarity unfold!

With transmutations, sword fights, liberal applications of love potions, horny behavior from all directions, sexually transgressive fairies, and at least one exposed Bottom; this is Shakespeare like you’ve never seen it before.

May contain glitter.

Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the genius combination of a 1-hour long Shakespeare play with a single drunken cast member hurled into the mix for the audience’s delight and delectation.

Warning: Shit-faced Shakespeare® contains real traces of actual Shakespeare and deeply inappropriate behavior throughout!

Following sellout runs all over the US since 2015 Shit-faced Shakespeare is back with the show that launched it all.

Book early to avoid soul-crushing life-choice failure.

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:

Brett Milanowski

Brett is one of our original Boston Shit-faced Shakesperians. Despite appearances he’s only been doing this for four years and has actually improved in that time. When asked, Brett claims that this show is the second worst thing that has ever happened to him...we didn’t ask about the first. Brett acts, directs, and produces for Shit-faced Shakespeare. Brett is rapidly approaching his 40th birthday. He won’t say from which direction.

Liz Hartford

Her thumbs may be short but her list of men she’s gone on first dates with is long. In fact, chances are at least two audience members sitting alone tonight are here after a short and only moderately awkward chat on a dating app. Ask her about her Purim Puppet Show and this professional clown is certain to show you a good time.

Tyler Rosati

Tyler’s first role with Shit-faced Shakespeare was ‘Puck’ in A Midsummer Night’s Dream four years ago. No, you don’t need to clean your glasses -- not much has changed in the past four years. Same show. Same role. Same shitty “peach” “champagne”. Tyler would rather be at home watching The Emperor’s New Groove than be here tonight, but alas...
