Booze & the Bard: The Shakespearean Drinking Game

Following sell-out seasons of 'Macbeth, the Scotch Play' and 'Twelfth Pint (or What You Spill)', the brilliant minds at Booze & the Bard are back with their theatrical drinking games!

Five actors perform a 75-minute, improvised retelling of one of Shakespeare's classic plays, with a twist - one of their troupe is drunk.

★★★★½ "The show is hilarious, a little bit rude, and has a whole lot of heart. I'm sure it would be just as the Bard intended." Fringefeed, 2021

4:30pm The Lost Dice, 10:15pm Drama Llama - 'Much A-Brew About Nothing'

Our new comedy, complete with mistaken identity, boozy banter, and one sadistic spinning wheel!

7:15pm TGI @ Scots - 'Hamlet: Pints of Denmark'

★★★★½ "Shakespeare’s Hamlet as it should be: dramatic, interactive, and full of drunken chaos." On The Record, 2023

Please arrive early to purchase your drinks from the bar before heading in for the show.
