Following the success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Taming of the Shrew earlier this season, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® is proud to present the final show in their 2021-22 Season: Romeo & Juliet, which will run at the Rockwell Theater in Davis Square from May 5 through July 9.
This summer at The Rockwell, five classically trained, professional Shakespearean actors – with one of them classically, Shakespeareanly shit-faced – will be portraying two households, both alike in their lack of dignity.
There is no love lost between the Capulet and Montague families and everyone in Verona knows it.
Certainly the only way to mend centuries of bad blood is by having two forlorn teenagers from opposite households fall in love with each other, right?
Nothing that a swig of the finest spirits can’t fix!
Join us for rollicking sword fights, star-crossed romance, Daytime TV-level faux death scenes… and, of course, a drink (or seven) along the way.
Shit-Faced Shakespeare® is an internationally renowned mega-hit that has performed on three continents, consumed tens of thousands of real alcoholic beverages, and entertained almost half a million audience members worldwide.
Since arriving in Boston in 2015, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® has performed sozzled renditions of six works in Shakespeare’s canon, and shows no sign of stopping.
With a high-falutin’ cocktail of traditional Elizabethan theatre and balls-to-the-wall drunken shenanigans, audiences from London’s West End to stages across America have fallen in love with this unique theatrical experience.
Romeo and Juliet will run from May 5 through July 9, at the Rockwell in Davis Square (255 Elm St, Somerville, MA 02144).
Ticket Price: $30, available at this link.
Run Time: Sixty minutes with no intermission
Effective January 20, 2022, everyone age 5 and up entering The Rockwell (at 255 Elm Street, Somerville) must show proof of full vaccination. This includes all staff, audience, cast and crew attending and/or performing at The Rockwell. You may show proof of vaccination in a number of ways:
● Bring in your vaccine card
● Bring in a photo of your vaccine card on your phone
● Enroll in the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 SMART Health Card program and we’ll scan and verify the QR code In addition, we will require all guests to wear masks while with us during performances. This includes hallways, lobby, bar area, restrooms, and once you are seated. You may remove your mask when actively sipping on that tasty beverage from the bar but mask back up once you’re done.
To echo what our friend’s at the Somerville Media Center say: we’ll have zero tolerance of noses in public spaces. We will offer you a new mask if yours is ill-fitting, but if we see noses hanging out of masks or masks hanging off faces, we will ask that face’s owner to leave.
The Rockwell follows current CDC guidelines and requirements from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Somerville. Be aware that these guidelines are ever-changing and if anything changes we will be in touch. Despite the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Somerville lifting vaccine requirements and mask mandates, we are committed to protecting our staff and artists, as many of the latter will be performing unmasked.

Let’s all do our part to stop the spread and keep one another healthy. #MaskUp
