The Internationally acclaimed, and award-winning Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is back for the 5th year at Leicester Square Theatre and it’s going to be a bloodbath, with their all-new production of Macbeth.
Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the hilarious combination of an entirely serious adaptation of a Shakespearean classic, with an entirely sh!t-faced cast member. With one cast member selected at random and given four hours to drink before every show, this is classical theatre as it was always meant to be seen; with a gin in one hand, a cup of wine in the other and a flagon of ale in the other…
Upon hearing the weird sisters’ prediction, Macbeth and his wily wife take matters into their own hands and 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 an inebriated actor will help the process along?
Featuring Shakespeare’s most lovable witches, ghostly best friends, hellhounds, unhinged wives, enough dead kings to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, and lots of plaid, Scotland storms London in 2021.
Audiences are invited to settle in for a pint (or two!) and raise a glass with Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® as they present the classic combination of a Tetris-ed together Shakespeare script, a six pack of professional actors and a luge of booze. What could possibly go right?
The rotating cast includes Natalie Boakye, Flora Sowerby, Stacey Norris, John Mitton, James Murfitt, Will Seaward and Matthew Seager.
Warning: Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is perfect for those wishing to add to their repertoire of colourful language and not for those who blush easily at the mere mention of the “F” word…
Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth is playing exclusively at Leicester Square Theatre in 2021.
