Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: The Taming of the Shrew

Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: The Taming of the Shrew

Leicester Square Theatre · 17 APR - 01 JUN

Shakespeare’s wildest lovers storm Leicester Square Theatre for the long-awaited UK premier of Shit-faced Shakespeare: The Taming of the Shrew.

Overview

Wealthy sisters Katherina and Bianca find themselves pitched against suspicious suitors, the entire renaissance patriarchy and each other. Why not throw in a booze soaked thespian for good measure?

Featuring cross dressing, food fights, a highly underwhelming horse, one too many bum cheeks and more twisted gender politics than you can shake a fawning fat-skinned fustilarian at!

Shit-faced Shakespeare selects the finest Shakespeare plays, reduces them down to one hour spectaculars and adds a single drunken cast member to the mix every single night.

Age Recommendation: 16+

Critic reviews

Fails to pack a punch

Londonist

Possibly not a production if you’re looking for knowledge into Shakespeare’s classics, but if you’re looking for fun, laughs and suspense its certainly a winner

West End Wilma

If you love the Bard but would prefer the same stories but with a modern, tongue-in-cheek update (and a bottle of Echo Falls), then you’ll most likely love this boozy version of The Taming of the Shrew
