TWELFTH NIGHT | F*CKING UP SHAKESPEARE
One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, Twelfth Night is part of LES Shakespeare’s F*ckin Up Shakespeare Series where an intoxicated actor and seven classically trained professionals stumble through a Shakespearean play with hilarity and audience involvement.
With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two productions are ever the same. Uncensored, explicit and frequently out of control this is Shakespeare as the Bard himself would recognize it... probably.
