Please note that:
The scheduled 2020 production of Shit-Faced Shakespeare: Macbeth has been deferred to 2021 due to Covid-19.
New booking dates are 16 June - 11 September 2021.
The story of the murderous Macbeths is the stuff of legends: an ambitious husband and wife, a trio of weird sisters, a startling prophecy… and a blood stain that just won’t wash out. So far, so Shakespeare. But what happens when you add a drunk actor to the mix?
Shit-Faced Shakespeare have become acclaimed worldwide thanks to their on-the-nose (and on the booze) approach to the playwright’s greatest hits. At each performance, one professionally trained actor is chosen to get drunk before curtains up, and their sober co-stars must prepare for whatever’s thrown at them – foul or fair!
Having previously drunk themselves under the table with Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this delightfully derailed show is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before.
Tipsy witches and legless ghosts… this definitely isn’t the dusty play you studied at school. Raise a glass to Shit-Faced Shakespeare: Macbeth when it barrels into the Leicester Square Theatre on 16 June 2021.
