The Brand-New, Full-Throated Adventures of Reginald D Hunter

The Brand-New, Full-Throated Adventures of Reginald D Hunter

Mick Perrin Worldwide

Reginald D Hunter returns to the Fringe this summer with his highly anticipated new show. For over 20 years his searingly honest material has garnered him a cross-generational fan base. TV appearances have included Have I Got News for You?, and two series of BBC Two's hugely popular Reginald D Hunter's Songs of the South, documenting Reginald's epic road trip through American popular song. 'Compelling onstage charisma. He remains a towering presence in absolute control' ★★★★ (Evening Standard). 'Arguably the most accomplished act in the comedy section of your Fringe brochure' (Scotsman).

Sh*t Faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet

Sh*t Faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet

The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is touring the UK with one of Shakespeare's most loved plays: Romeo and Juliet. Shit-faced Shakespeare is the hilarious combination of an entirely serious adaptation of a Shakespearean classic, with an entirely shit-faced cast member. With one cast member selected at random and given four hours to drink before every show we present to you classical theatre as it was always meant to be seen. With a gin in one hand, a cup of wine in the other and a flagon of ale in the other… What could possibly go wrong? Shit-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist – reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.

“A great night out to get properly pucked up. It’s what Willy would have wanted.” Time Out ★★★★

“There is no doubt this is a hoot to watch” Evening Standard
