Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist – reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.




produced by Daniel Berger-Jones and Gabriel Kuttner 






Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 50,000 eager theatre goers across the UK & US. Having successfully completed multiple sell-out runs of the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, the show has made its way stateside and has been enjoying a smashingly successful run since April 2015 with productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing in Boston and Austin. 






With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same and audiences can even dictate when the actor gets to drink more to prevent unwanted sobriety.
