Shit-Faced Shakespeare®: The Merchant of Venice

May 14 – July 11, 2020

The Rockwell

This Shakespeare classic is back at The Rockwell this spring and not like you’ve ever seen it before.

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 The Merchant of Venice in a limited engagement run at The Rockwell. A little crazier, a little 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.
