Romeo, romeo, wherefore art thou… rum punch? Sh!t-faced Shakespeare return to London this summer with an alcoholic version of Romeo and Juliet. Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare presents: Romeo and Juliet is at Leicester Square Theatre from 6 July to 10 September.

Each night before the show, an actor is given four hours to consume as much alcohol before the performance. Then, the company perform Romeo and Juliet, albeit with an alcoholic twist. You’ll never see a Romeo and Juliet quite like it.

The Romeo and Juliet cast includes Louise Lee, Stacey Norris, Lucy Farrar, Jessica Brindle, Richard Hughes, David Ellis, Christopher Lane and John Mitton.
