Reoccurring Shows

2019/2020 Season

The Kerfuffle

We’re extremely excited to tell you on Friday, December 183th The Kerfuffle is back for another round! Come check out one of the most storied independent comedy shows at The Rockwell in Somerville (formerly The Davis Square Theatre).

The Kerfuffle came from the imaginations of Jackie Arko, Hannah Foell, and Casey Malone—and it was the blind-booked vaudeville variety show de jour from 2012 to 2017. It features a mix of sketch, interactive, and completely undefinable comedy.

Hosted by Jackie Arko & Tess Varney

Doors: 9:00 pm
Show: 9:30 pm

Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth

"Something wicked drunk this way comes..." That's the line right?! It is in Shit-faced Shakespeare's® version of this Shakespeare classic and it's back at The Rockwell this fall. Shit-faced Shakespeare® landed Stateside in 2015 and has been bringing you the nonstop hilarity ever since! The Boston Bastards storm the Somerville stage once again with Macbeth in a limited engagement run at The Rockwell. A little crazier, a zanier, and of course a little drunker.  

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 worldwide since 2010 and has already entertained over 300,000 eager theatre goers across the UK, the US, and Australia.

With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth 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.

Shit-faced Shakespeare® : A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Back by popular demand, it's Shit-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night's DreamFour young lovers find themselves lost in the woods and in the hands of a mischievous sex-obsessed fairy. Dosed up on Puck’s “magical flower” the lovers develop new objects of desire. Let’s see if a disheveled drunk will help to clear up the confusion. Featuring 16th-century ‘love juice’, a woman obsessed with spaniels, donkey-headed humans, foul-mouthed fairies and a head-spinning square of passionate admiration, you will leave Shit-faced Shakespeare® feeling dizzy from excitement (or one too many drinks at the bar).

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 100,000 eager theatre goers across the UK. Shit-faced Shakespeare® landed Stateside in April of 2015.

With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare®  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.
