Mixing Shakespeare with alcohol – what could possibly go. . . Right?
The smash-hit raucous production 'Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare' returns to Adelaide Fringe, presenting one of William Shakespeare's iconic stories, 'Macbeth', but not quite in the way you might think.
You may have guessed from the title, but in this iteration of the Bard's classic, there's one totally inebriated cast member, which means no two shows are the same, and what audiences get is total fun chaos.
Here, the gang at 'Sh!t-Faced' tell us five of the most outrageous things that have happened in one of their shows.
OneA drunken actor stealing a technician's bike from backstage and taking it for a test ride around the stage.
TwoA drunken actor doing a ‘shoey’ from an audience member's smelly shoe.
ThreeA drunken actor proposing to his girlfriend mid-show. He got her up on stage, took the knee and then proceeded to tell everyone he was only joking. He got booed offstage and the girlfriend decided to push back any future engagement. . . Indefinitely.
FourPicture this, the greatest love story ever told, Juliet is on top of Romeo after their first night together. A drunken Romeo lets out an accidental/extremely unromantic fart. Juliet then proceeds to laugh so much she wets herself on top of Romeo. It must be love!
FiveA drunken actor stole a power drill from backstage and walked towards her fellow actors with said drill on full power!
'Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare' plays The Roundhouse at The Garden of Unearthly Delights (Adelaide Fringe) 16 February-17 March.
