This summer at The Rockwell, five classically trained, professional Shakespearean actors – with one of them classically, Shakespeareanly shit-faced – will be portraying two households, both alike in their lack of dignity. There is no love lost between the Capulet and Montague families and everyone in Verona knows it. Certainly the only way to mend centuries of bad blood is by having two forlorn teenagers from opposite households fall in love with each other, right? Nothing that a swig of the nest spirits can’t fix! Join us for rollicking sword fights, star-crossed romance, Daytime TV-level faux death scenes... and, of course, a drink (or seven) along the way.
Shit-Faced Shakespeare® is an internationally renowned mega-hit that has performed on three continents, consumed tens of thousands of real alcoholic beverages, and entertained almost half a million audience members worldwide. Since arriving in Boston in 2015, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® has performed sozzled renditions of six works in Shakespeare’s canon, and shows no sign of stopping. With a high-falutin’ cocktail of traditional Elizabethan theatre and balls-to-the-wall drunken shenanigans, audiences from London’s West End to stages across America have fallen in love with this unique theatrical experience.
Please note that at this time, we are still requiring masks and proof of vaccination at all performances, but this is subject to change.
