The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, award-winning, multi sell-out Fringe legends are coming to Adelaide with the Bard’s most beloved play: Romeo and Juliet.
Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the genuinely hilarious combination of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely Shit-faced actor. What could possibly go right? With a single genuinely inebriated cast member chosen each night, no two shows are ever the same in this raucous, riotous, rampage through Shakespeare’s greatest works: Romeo and Juliet.

This multi-award winning, interactive, cult-hit show has already ‘entertained’ over 170,000 audience members worldwide from Edinburgh to the USA and even London’s glittering West End. We are delighted to be introducing a new generation of Adelaide theatregoers to Shakespeare with an ale in one hand and a wine in the other and a vodka in the other, just the way Old Willy would have wanted.

Come see what happens when a cast of talented Shakespearians take one of their troupe and ply them with 4 hours’ worth of grog, all for your delight!

WARNING: This show contains a single, genuinely inebriated cast member and may therefore contain strong language, nudity, implied acts of a sexual nature, rapidly expelled bodily fluids, dreadful singing, actual acts of a sexual nature and possibly ‘some Shakespeare’. Always remember to Enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.
