About Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shit-faced Shakespeare® landed Stateside in April of 2015 and has been bringing you the nonstop hilarity ever since! The original Shit-faced Shakespeare show from 2010 makes its triumphant return to Boston as Magnificent Bastard Productions returns to The Rockwell with Shit-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Four young lovers from ancient Greece find themselves lost in the woods at night with only a complex love quadrangle to keep them warm. Good job this place isn’t infested with randy fairies, eh? Let’s pour a glass of bubbly (or two!) and watch the hilarity unfold!

Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 300,000 eager theatre goers across the UK and the US.

With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night's Dream seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist - reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.
