Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare


27 March - 21 April 2024

Athenaeum Theatre 1

The hilarious, smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, multi sell-out festival phenomenon returns to Melbourne to help you enjoy Shakespeare responsibly!

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare is the hilarious blend of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely sh!t-faced actor. What could possibly go right? With a genuinely inebriated cast member each night, no two shows are ever the same in this raucous, riotous, rampage through Shakespeare's most iconic play – Macbeth.

Warning: this show includes a genuinely drunk performer and anything could happen. This show may contain drinking, swearing, nudity, simulated acts of a sexual nature, terrible singing, actual acts of a sexual nature and quite possibly – some actual Shakespeare.

'No-holds-barred ecstasy.' ★★★★★ Broadway Baby (UK)

'Hilarious.' ★★★★★ Adelaide Advertiser
