Leicester Square Theatre, London
Booking to 9 September 2023
Not currently booking

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare is back home at Leicester Square Theatre in London with an all new production of their hit show Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing

When the sinister bastard Don John and his troupe of bachelor soldiers arrive in Messina, love is in the air as old flames are re-ignited and new desires begin to burn. Maybe some giggle juice will help lubricate the process? 

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare is the classic combination of a hacked-to-bits Shakespeare script, half a dozen professional actors and a bucket load of booze! Sounds classical to us. 

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing is playing at the Leicester Square Theatre from 5 July to 9 September 2023.

What's the story of Sh!t-faced Shakespeare?

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing is a spicy cocktail made up of mistaken identities, a pantomime villain, lovers left jilted at the altar, a renegade sword fighting mum who saves the day and a sex doll mixed in for good measure! Not forgetting a genuinely drunken actor having carte blanche to do whatever tickles their fancy and we can assure you the course of love will NOT run smooth. After all, the most exciting cocktails are the ones you set on fire… right?

News about Sh!t-faced Shakespeare

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare return to London’s Leicester Square Theatre with Much Ado About Nothing
Hit comedy troupe Sh!t-faced Shakespeare are returning to London this summer, bringing their hilarious take on Shakespeare's classic comedy Much Ado About Nothing to the Leicester Square Theatre. The show will run from 5 July to 9 September 2023 at the Leicester Square Theatre. Sh!t-faced Shakespeare takes 7 professional actors and a Shakespeare script - and throws a bucket-load of booze into the mix! Each night before the show, one designated actor is given four hours to “wet their whistle” by consuming as much alcohol as they can get their hands on. The revolving cast then give Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing their signature Sh!t-faced twist, as they attempt to navigate this comic tale of misunderstandings, love and deception. A smash-hit, internationally-acclaimed, award-winning phenomenon, Sh!t-faced Shakespeare have been making fools of themselves on stage since 2010, and have performed multiple sell-out runs in London at the Leicester Square Theatre, and around the world including Edinburgh, Brighton, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Sydney, Boston, Austin, Atlanta and Minnesota. Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing is a spicy cocktail made up of mistaken identities, a pantomime villain, lovers left jilted at the altar, a renegade sword fighting mum who saves the day and a sex doll mixed in for good measure! Not forgetting a genuinely drunken actor having carte blanche to do whatever tickles their fancy and we can assure you the course of love will NOT run smooth. Director Stacey Norris said in a press statement: “We have been performing Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® for over 10 years and I still regularly ask myself at the end of a show…how the hell did we end up here? Thruples, whole cast massacres, audience marriages, dance offs to the death. There is no formula and we genuinely have no idea how the show will finish on any given night. What I can be sure of is that everyone at Sh!t-faced Shakespeare is a complete liability and takes great pleasure in watching their cast mates struggle…it’s the job of dreams!” More about tickets to Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing at the Leicester Square Theatre in London
