Sh!t-faced Showtime: A Midsummer Night's Dream

This year, Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® are pouring their legendary cock-eyed chaos into the Bard- shaped vessel that is A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Think drunken donkeys, fandangled fairies and mullered mechanicals... it’s hard to imagine anything more magical, right?

Each night, a rotating cast member will get seriously Shakespeareanly sloshed and attempt to perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream as you have never seen before. Making for a different show every night, nobody (not even the cast) knows in which direction the show will stumble. Come and get fuddled in the forest with us this summer!

14 years ago, Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® set out on the world's longest bar crawl and have been staggering from theatre to theatre ever since. From Edinburgh to Australia, Boston to Southend, this bunch of irreverent drama queens have been shaking up The Bard, performing to sell out crowds and most importantly, making people roar with laughter ever since.

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® seek to remind theatregoers that life is brighter when you are being silly.
