Look for a peculiar locksmith’s shop and follow the sound of clinking cocktails.

One professional actor downs at least 5 shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform… in a Shakespearean play.

The stage is set in a hidden speakeasy located behind the Chicago Theater. Guests enter through a locksmith’s shop to find a glam cocktail bar and library with over 10,000 books. Five classically-trained actors meet there as members of “The Drunk Shakespeare Society”. One drinks at least 5 shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform a major role in a Shakespearean play. Hilarity and mayhem ensue while the four sober actors try to keep the script on track. Each show is different depending on who is drinking… and what they’re drinking!
