Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: HamletIf you're not already familiar with their work Sh!tfaced-Shakespeare takes a cast of professionally trained, Shakespearian actors and every night one of them performs while completely ratted. This time they're turning their attention to Hamlet. "The story of a whiny lad who goes a bit loopy and does some stabbings", as they put it. Expect foul language, outrageous behaviour and terrible singing as the sober cast attempt to steer our drunken hero through a 70 minute adapted script. With the original text reduced, every night is a high-energy race to the finish through an ever changing series of drunken detours.

 

About Leicester Square Theatre

In 2002 this compact, 350 seater opened with Taboo, Boy George's musical trawl through Thatcher's 80s and his own turbulent career, a production that ran for well over a year. The Leicester Square Theatre seems to have succeeded in carving out a niche for itself amongst the many grand Edwardian playhouses and cavernous auditoriums of London's Theatreland.
