Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet

Leicester Square Theatre

What else is on at Leicester Square Theatre?

For years and years teachers, thespians and Shakespeare-lovers across the globe (pun intended) have tried their absolute hardest to introduce new audiences to marvel at the genius that is William Shakespeare. 

And for all their passion, sweat, and dramatic lecturing, sometimes it just doesn't get through.

Until now...

"How can we get new generations to fall in love with Shakespeare?"

Sh!t-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...

Before every performance one cast member gets very drunk.

Suddenly, anything can happen. What if drunk Romeo isn't as charming? What if sweet Juliet is a pain in the butt when she's had a few sherbets?

Nothing that a swig of the finest spirits can’t fix!

The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, award-winning, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is back at Leicester Square Theatre with their version of Romeo and Juliet.

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?

Featuring Shakespeare’s most famous feuding family, cousins without a cause, and so many faux deaths it makes daytime TV look good.


Warning: Sh!t-faced Shakespeare absolutely 100% without a doubt will feature foul language and some nudity.
