A new show of uproarious musical comedy from Australia’s favourite bickering identical twins. Settle in for hilarious songs that have seen them compared to Flight of The Conchords, Tim Minchin & Bo Burnham, mixed with their trademark sibling rivalry banter. In 2017 the Stevenson’s swept the world – selling out entire seasons everywhere from Melbourne to Edinburgh – and picking up a Best Comedy Nomination for the third year in a row at FRINGE WORLD.

Shit-faced Shakespeare is the hilarious combination of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one entirely Shit-faced actor. What could possibly go right? With a genuinely inebriated cast member chosen each night, no two shows are ever the same in this raucous, riotous, rampage through Shakespeare’s greatest work: Romeo and Juliet.
