What to Watch For

  • Each performance of Drunk Shakespeare is a unique adaptation of a Shakespearean play. The chosen play is selected by spinning a wheel, and the cast then performs a heavily abridged and comedic version of that play.
  • Ready to be part of the fun? The show encourages audience involvement, making it an interactive experience. Audience members may be selected to participate in the performance, play minor roles, or even be seated onstage.
  • A rubber duck is a central prop in Drunk Shakespeare. It acts as a sort of "pause" button, allowing the drunk actor to regain their composure or seek help from the other cast members during moments of confusion or improvisation.
  • Brush up on your Shakespearean knowledge and see if you can catch the clever nods, witty references, and playful reinterpretations hidden throughout the performance.
