If you found the performers at the last play you attended to be too polished and not slurring their words nearly enough, then perhaps you should consider attending a play put on by the The Drunk Shakespeare Society.

Self-identifying as a "company of professional drinkers with a serious Shakespeare problem," The Drunk Shakespeare Society puts on shows that are always fun and unpredictable. At the beginning of every show, one member from the troupe consumes five shots of alcohol, while the remaining members of the cast have to be ready to improvise their response to whatever drunken nonsense is uttered.

With its low cost, encouragement of audience participation, and fun atmosphere The Drunk Shakespeare Society is bringing theater to a whole new audience.
