The Drunk Shakespeare Society to Present the World Premiere of Drunk Shakespeare

The society is a self-proclaimed "drinking club with a Shakespeare problem." logo

The Drunk Shakespeare Society will present the world premiere production of Drunk Shakespeare, an irreverent and outrageous new theatrical experience directed by David Hudson, from March 26-June 8 at Quinn's Bar Upstairs. The production is conceived by Scott Griffin & Three Day Hangover and produced by Scott Griffin.

The Drunk Shakespeare Society has been meeting, drinking, and doing Drunk Shakespeare for over 400 years. When the society's members invite audiences to join them for a meeting in their society lounge, the evening begins with one actor drinking more than a sophisticated amount of alcohol before attempting to lead the cast through a Shakespeare story in 60 minutes.

Drunk Shakespeare will be performed nightly by a rotating company of actors. The cast includes Lucas Calhoun, Kristin Friedlander, Phil Gillen, Kate Gunther, Josh Hyman, Whit Leyenberger, Christina Liu, Lindsey Hope Pearlman, Louis Sallan, and Damiyr Shufor.

The design team includes Maddie Bucci (set design), Caitlin Cisek (costume design), and Gordon Hamilton (composer).
