Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: Hamlet

Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: Hamlet

Leicester Square Theatre · 19 JUN - 14 SEP

Shit-faced Shakespeare® is back for 2019 and they promise to be wilder, funnier, gorier,more outrageous and drunker than ever before!

Overview

These Fringe legends have toured the world, broken America, established themselves on London’s West End, won numerous awards, survived a zero star review in The Times and are now ready for their biggest challenge yet: Hamlet Prince of Denmark.

Featuring a cast of professional Shakespearean actors, each night one lucky victim is selected and carefully intoxicated for up to 4 hours prior to show time. The remaining sober cast are then tasked with negotiating the play around whatever furious nonsense emerges from their drunken co-star.

Featuring foul language, outrageous behaviour, terrible singing, rapidly expelled bodily fluids and dangerous swordplay, Shakespeare has long been considered ‘cultural’. Think of it like Game of Thrones with less boobs.*

Shitfaced-Shakespeare® is finally ready to tackle the greatest dramatic work ever committed to page in the English language, Hamlet. The story of a whiny lad who goes a bit loopy and does some stabbings. Sounds like comedy gold!

Critic reviews

Classically trained Shakespearian actors squander their talent on a puerile, booze fuelled interpretation of Hamlet. But it’s a bit of a laugh...isn't it?

Everything Theatre

This side-splitting take on Hamlet is sure to be an exhilarating night out

Broadway World

A show that is enjoyable in parts, and one that will split audiences in terms of taste

The Upcoming

You’re in for a night of raucous laughter and it really is that simple
