Shitfaced Shakespeare

Magnificent Bastard Productions are proud to announce that their smash hit fringe theatre show, Shit-faced Shakespeare, will be gracing the meadows of Bestival this September!

Shit-faced Shakespeare is the genius combination of an entirely serious Shakespeare play… with an entirely shit-faced actor. With a literary classic, a cast of classically trained actors and a randomly assigned drunk we guarantee you a unique experience that’ll leave you gasping for a chaser.

Shit-faced Shakespeare has been touring the UK’s fringe festivals since 2010 and has gained critical acclaim, sell-out runs, award nomination and has sold over 16,000 tickets to date. To cap this year’s all new show we’ll be rounding off the summer in the best way possible; a series of performances at Bestival. Come catch us at the beautiful Amphitheatre Stage or out in the wild at our only music festival this year.

So grab thy best fellows, get thee round in good time. For there’s virtue in truth and there’s truth in good wine.
