LONDON, EDINBURGH, BOSTON, AUSTIN, ATLANTA, PITTSBURGH . . . AND MAYNARD!
Five classically trained Shakespearean actors. One shit-faced cast member. What could possibly go wrong!?
Originally produced in London, Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare® — an entirely serious condensed Shakespeare play, with an entirely shit-faced cast member — has landed at the epicenter of the theatre world — Maynard, Massachusetts.
"My naked weapon is out." The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, award-winning, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is coming to Sanctuary with their version of Much Ado About Nothing. When the sinister Don John and his troupe of bachelor soldiers arrive in Messina, Sicily love is in the air as old flames are re-ignited and new desires begin to burn. Maybe some hard liquor will help lubricate the process? Featuring Shakespeare’s most reluctant pair of lovers, villainous bastards, mistaken identities, faked deaths, sword fights, masque balls and lots of lovely, lovely booze.
The Sh!t-faced Shakespeare ensemble is a rather splendid bunch of actors, performers, writers, producers, artists and — most important — friends. They exist to produce exquisite theatrical shows, superb live events, and provide a handy outlet for mucking-about, showing-off, and practicing the noble art of fancy dress! Unlike other troupes of thespian types, they differ in their utter contempt for restraint, orthodoxy, tedium, moderation, and sobriety. To be a part of Sh!t-faced Shakespeare is to fuck about, play, experiment, step right over the bounds of convention, and sometimes even decency, all the while never forgetting to entertain.
