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!

Much Ado About Nothing

May 3 - June 22, 2024

“I do not love nothing in the world so well as you- is that not strange?”

Our final season at the Rockwell concludes with crowd favorite Much Ado About Nothing!

When the sinister Don John and his troupe of bachelor soldiers arrive in Messina, Sicily love is in the air as old flames are re-ignited and new desires begin to burn. Maybe some hard liquor will help lubricate the process? Featuring Shakespeare’s most reluctant pair of lovers, villainous bastards, mistaken identities, faked deaths, sword fights, masque balls and lots of lovely lovely booze.
