Featuring a rotating cast of the finest classically trained actors, the choicest cuts of Shakespearean classics, and more inebriated antics than you can shake a weather beaten bull’s pizzle at! Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is the unique theatrical experience that has left audiences roaring in the aisles the world over.

The Rockwell Theater, Somerville

Thurs- Sat // 7PM



Sept 15 - Nov 18, 2023

"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked [tipsy] this way comes"

Fresh from battle, the warrior Macbeth is given a supernatural prophecy that leads him on a path of murderous ambition and insanity- a path enjoined by the ruthless Lady Macbeth. They strew the Scottish countryside with bodies until their brutal, wicked end. Nothing that couldn’t be solved with a few cocktails!

Back from record attendance and glorious fan feedback, Shit-faced Shakespeare once again tackles the Bard’s bold, bloody and resolute tale of madness!

The Taming of the Shrew

January 26- March 16, 2024

“Why, there's wench!”

The most audacious lovers in Shakespeare's canon beat the doors down once again as Shit-faced Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew returns to The Rockwell Theater.

Wealthy sisters Katherina and Bianca are pitched against suspicious suitors, the entire Renaissance patriarchy, and each other. If only there was a drunk actor to make all this ridiculous! Featuring food fights, one too many bum cheeks, a highly underwhelming horse, and more twisted gender politics than you can shake a fawning, fat-skinned fustilarian at!


May 2 - June 29, 2024

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”

Is it the murder of a king? A hasty incestuous marriage? A prince bent on revenge? Or maybe just a gassy Polonius full of beer! Shakespeare’s greatest work gets the full Shit-faced treatment as we proudly present the US premiere of HAMLET.

This timeless examination of the nature of humanity is performed in an hour, so “To be or not be” gets answered pretty quickly! Grab a cocktail and enjoy as we prove that brevity is indeed the soul of wit- helped with a bit of wine!
