Drunk Classics

Event theatre that’s one part classic text, one part improvised revue of said classic text and all parts party. Developed by director Jackie Koester and producer Summer Banks – with lots of borrowed inspiration from Drunk Shakespeare and the Back Room Shakespeare Project – in 2017. Many thanks to VeraContent and MAD Improv for their support in our first season. The Madrid branch is currently in its third season and Berlin launched its first full season at 800A in September 2019.

Audience Reactions Berlin (from Facebook)

“Peter Sorin that sounds like a pimp? Masha portrayed by Bobby Peru (or the other way around…)? And Konstantin, what a genius! Never has The Seagull been so punk and flamboyant.Drunk Classics is basically Withnail and I teleported into the works of Shakespeare and Chekhov, which makes it by far the best and wildest theater experience you will find in Berlin. The amazing cast will take you on a ride that will start as a hilarious interpretation of your favourite classical piece, and will end with a cirrhosis – and you crying of laughter.” – Rinat

Audience Reactions Madrid (from Atrapalo)

“Highly ad-libbed and abridged. Easy to understand & funny. Interesting & personal interpretations of the characters. Modern touches and also references to the original context. Shakespeare would be proud.” – Genevieve

We were a bit unsure about what to expect, but it turned out to be a great night! It was fun and engaging and above all super funny. The actors were great and the show was hilarious. People were genuinely having fun – we will be back for the next show for sure!” – Emoke

“Una genial manera de acercarte a los clásicos y practicar inglés” – Angel
