Shit-faced Shakespeare® : The Taming of the Shrew

February 10 – April 9, 2022

The Rockwell

Tickets

Shakespeare’s wildest lovers storm The Rockwell this spring for the long awaited return of Shit-faced Shakespeare®: The Taming of the Shrew. Wealthy sisters Katherina and Bianca find themselves pitched against suspicious suitors, the entire renaissance patriarchy and each other. Why not throw in a booze soaked thespian for good measure? Featuring cross dressing, food fights, a highly underwhelming horse, one too many bum cheeks and more twisted gender politics than you can shake a fawning fat-skinned fustilarian at!

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 200,000 eager theatre goers across the UK. Shit-faced Shakespeare® landed Stateside in April of 2015 with its first performances right here at The Rockwell.

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.
