Shit-Faced Shakespeare: Hamlet Tickets
The drunken fringe-theatre phenomenon is back – this time with Hamlet. See Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy like never before at the Leicester Square Theatre, as each night member of this professional ensemble will be selected to get intoxicated before the show – leaving their fellow cast-mates to navigate around with hilarious results.
Foul language, outrageous behaviour, possible vomiting and…Shakespeare? A mix that has taken the fringe theatre world by storm thanks to Shit-Faced Shakespeare, who now take on their biggest challenge yet; Hamlet.
After touring the world and winning much acclaim (as well as derision from the more uptight critics), the team behind Shit-Faced Shakespeare bring their unique take on the bard to the Leicester Square Theatre in what promises to be a raucous night of laughs. In each performance of Hamlet, one of these professionally trained Shakespearean actors will be selected to get carefully intoxicated over the four hours prior to curtain-up. The remaining sober thespians must take what is thrown at them (sometimes literally) by their inebriated cohort.
“To drink, or not to drink?” – That is a question left up to the audience, who will enjoy some interaction over when the plastered player must down another beverage. The now-iconic tin bucket will be granted to one audience member each night, just in case the aforementioned sloshed star feels the need to project a soliloquy that’s slightly more solid in nature...
It’s silly, it’s crass, it’s unpredictable and it’s absolutely hilarious. This is a night out to remember (for all but one particular person involved) and perfect for a rowdy night out with mates, so be sure to get down to the Leicester Square Theatre for a riotously fun time with Shit-Faced Shakespeare - just be sure to visit the bar first.
