About the show
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 24 June 2020.
Recommended forShit-Faced Shakespeare: Macbeth is a great night out for a group of friends reminiscing about their school days – or those wanting a (slightly) more high-brow stag or hen do.
Age Recommendations: Recommended 16+
