See seven professional actors try to get through one of the Bard’s most infamous comedies, The Taming of the Shrew. For those that think Willie’s version is a bit sexist, you are in for a treat. It’s a bit different with the Inebriated Shakespeare treatment. In this version, the Shrew tamer is Petruchia, a woman! We guarantee you will never see a version like this one again.
The premise is simple. The actors begin the show sober and, with help from the audience, become drunk as the show progresses. Now in its fourth year, Inebriated Shakespeare is wild, fun and completely unpredictable.https://www.mercylounge.com/event/1800840/
Performing in venues, bars and clubs around Music City, Wild Card Production’s Inebriated Shakespeare incorporates an abbreviated version of a William Shakespeare play with some adult beverages thrown in. The audience can purchase shots, which are a $5 donation (per shot) to the non-profit theatre company, and it helps the actors become inebriated. Those attending shows are encouraged to bring cash for the shots.
Inebriated Shakespeare has two casts of eight actors who do their best to execute the classic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Because two casts perform the show throughout the area, you can catch multiple performances and it will never be the same.
