SHIT-faced Shakespeare has announced a BSL interpreted performance of their chaotic and unpredictable Much Ado About Nothing for Saturday, July 22 at 7pm.

Each night, the script goes out the window as one sozzled actor sloshes through their lines and the rest of the cast incorporate his or her drunken ravings into the plot, however strange and implausible.

The highly experienced improvisers will be joined for one night only by Vicky Pannell, who will attempt to interpret the show and all its sudden changes of script for a deaf audience.

And with a drunk actor who often breaks the fourth wall to have a chat with the audience, the chances of Vicky not becoming part of the show are minimal…

Vicky said: “I’m looking forward to interpreting this show as booze and theatre are two of my favourite things. In fact – maybe I should have a little tipple too!”

Shit-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing runs at Leicester Square Theatre until September 16, 2017.
