Description
Back by popular demand, it's "Sh*t-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 pursue 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 from 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.
