Shit-Faced Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shit-Faced Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream

A lovely winter tale, set in the middle of summer, told by Magnificent Bastard Productions. Yes, this is an entirely serious Shakespeare play, but yes, one cast member is entirely shit-faced.

Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice

Enjoy an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member.

Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show has already entertained over 45,000 eager theatre goers across the UK and America. It heads to Southbank Centre with the final London performances of The Merchant of Venice.

'Genuinely hilarious' (The Guardian).

'The funniest show at the Fringe' (Daily Star)

'Very rock'n'roll' (The Times)
