Official Description

Back by popular demand, it's Shit-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night's Dream. Four young lovers find themselves lost in the woods and in the hands of a mischievous sex-obsessed fairy. Dosed up on Puck’s “magical flower” the lovers develop new objects of desire. Let’s see if a disheveled drunk will help to clear up the confusion. Featuring 16th-century ‘love juice’, a woman obsessed with spaniels, donkey-headed humans, foul-mouthed fairies and a head-spinning square of passionate admiration, you will leave Shit-faced Shakespeare® feeling dizzy from excitement (or one too many drinks at the bar). With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. 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.
