"A great night out to get properly Pucked up. It's what Willy would have wanted." ★★★★ Time Out . This is Macbeth Like you've never seen it - Seriously
Get together for a round of drinks and brush up on your iambic pentameter: Shit-Faced Shakespeare is finally back at The ED FRINGE, offering a hilariously sozzled version of Macbeth.
The story of the murderous Macbeths is the stuff of legends: an ambitious husband and wife, a trio of weird sisters, a startling prophecy… and a bloodstain that just won’t wash out. So far, so Shakespeare. But what happens when you add a drunk actor to the mix?
Tipsy witches and legless ghosts… this definitely isn’t the dusty play you studied at school. For a laugh-out-loud, unconventional take on the bard's most loved works, look no further than Shit Faced Shakespeare tickets.
"I have no idea how they do it, as there wasn’t a soul in the audience who wasn’t in stitches from start to finish" ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
