Touring London with Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare

The drunken troupe are tackling Romeo & Juliet at London's Leicester Square Theatre.

Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare deliver the bard’s iconic tales like never before. The premise is simple; the execution less so. One of the troupe’s cast members gets considerably drunk, while the rest of the cast try to keep them on track as the story unravels in unexpected ways.

This year, Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare tackle the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet. The story of love and rivalry unfolds at London’s Leicester Square Theatre throughout August and into September.

To celebrate the return of Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare, we took three of its cast members out for a historic tour of London, visiting the current site of The Globe, the theatre’s original site, and a commemorative bust of the man himself.

While drinking some particularly fine sparkling wine, the trio try to keep it together to deliver their favourite extracts from the tragedy.
