Shakespeare After Dark is back with a rocking February show: Bad Romance. What will happen to our darling Juliet when Romeo's taken a different type of poison? Featuring live swordplay from Affair of Honour, Shakin' Burlesque from our friends at Geekenders, and live music courtesy of the Shakespeare band, this is a one night stand no one will regret — except maybe our dear sloshed Romeo.

Shakespeare After Dark is the highbrow fusion of Shakespeare served with a side of improvisational mischief. In the first half, you'll witness a scene from the Bard utterly monkey-wrenched by an utterly punch-drunk cast member leaving the rest of the cast to improvise around them. Then, stick around for the second half where the cast lays the booze aside to serve a straight up Shakespearean tragedy – based on your suggestions. With a genuinely drunken professional actor volunteering every night, no two shows are ever the same. Side-splitting, raucous, and completely interactive, Shakespeare After Dark will blow you away.

Shakespeare After Dark 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 that only the spirit of improvisation can bring, whilst reminding them to to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.

Shakespeare After Dark regularly sells out so make sure you get your tickets in advance!
