About the show

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.

Recommended for

This is a great one to see as a group, perhaps to kick-start a stag or hen do. Anyone with a robust sense of humour who enjoys a tipple will have a good laugh at Shit-Faced Shakespeare’s tipsy take on Hamlet.

The set was basic but you get what you pay for, great range of ages in the audience and plenty of laughs had by all.

This show was bloody excellent. Suggest to absolutely anyone! (unless you hate crude jokes and excessive profanities)
