5 July 2023 - 9 September 2023
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?
