Shotspeare

September 22nd at 9:15pm

SHOTSPEARE puts the “Lit” in Literature! Five sword-wielding actors, one lucky audience member, a ton of booze, the Wheel of Soliloquy, and an entire work of Shakespeare – all in 80 minutes. Equal parts bacchanal and classical theater, Shotspeare’s raucous adaptation of ROMEO & JULIET takes the world's most beloved playwright, soaks him in beer, and flips him on his head. You may know the Bard, but you’ve never experienced him like THIS, Rochester!
