Back for one more show, it’s Shit-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Four young lovers find themselves lost in the woods and in the hands of a mischievous sex-obsessed fairy. Dosed up on Puck’s “magical flower” the lovers develop new objects of desire. Let’s see if a disheveled drunk will help to clear up the confusion. Featuring 16th-century ‘love juice’, a woman obsessed with spaniels, donkey-headed humans, foul-mouthed fairies and a head-spinning square of passionate admiration, you will leave Shit-faced Shakespeare® feeling dizzy from excitement (or one too many drinks at the bar).
Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 150,000 eager theatre goers across the UK. Shit-faced Shakespeare® landed Stateside in April of 2015 with its first performances right here at The Rockwell.
With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare® seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist – reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.

Still effective as of April 1, 2022, everyone age 5 and up entering The Rockwell (at 255 Elm Street, Somerville) must show proof of full vaccination. This includes all staff, audience, cast and crew attending and/or performing at The Rockwell.
In addition, we will require all guests to wear masks while with us during performances. This includes hallways, lobby, bar area, restrooms, and once you are seated. You may remove your mask when actively sipping on that tasty beverage from the bar but mask back up once you’re done. We’ll have zero tolerance of noses in public spaces. We will offer you a new mask if yours is ill-fitting, but if we see noses hanging out of masks or masks hanging off faces, we will ask that face’s owner to leave.
Be aware that these guidelines are ever-changing and if anything changes we will be in touch. Let’s all do our part to stop the spread and keep one another healthy. #MaskUP
