Sh*tfaced Shakespeare: Hamlet
  • West End

Sh*t-faced Shakespeare is back for 2019 and they promise to be wilder, funnier, gorier, more outrageous and drunker than ever before!

These Fringe legends have toured the world, broken America, established themselves on London's West End, won numerous awards, survived a zero star review in The Times and are now ready for their biggest challenge yet: Hamlet Prince of Denmark.

Featuring a cast of professional Shakespearian actors, each night one lucky victim is selected and carefully intoxicated for up to 4 hours prior to show time. The remaining sober cast are then tasked with negotiating the paly around whatever furious nonsense emerges from their drunken co-star.

Featuring foul language, outrageous behaviour, terrible singing, rapidly expelled bodily fluids and dangerous swordplay, Shakespeare has long been considered 'cultural'. Think of it like Game of Thrones with less boobs. *

Sh*t-faced-Shakespeare is finally ready to tackle the greatest dramatic work ever committed to page in the English language, Hamlet. The story of a whiny lad who goes a bit loopy and does some stabbings. Sounds like comedy gold!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
