It's no surprise that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck became movie stars after showing off their acting skills in "Good Will Hunting". The shocker is that they also wrote the critically acclaimed screenplay. Unable to believe that claim, comedian Mindy Kaling and actress Brenda Withers created this hilarious comedy that explains the "true" origin of the Academy Award-winning screenplay. In this clever re-imagining of the events that led to the creation of the film, the screenplay for "Good Will Hunting" drops mysteriously from the heavens and the boys realize they're being tested by a higher power. This affectionate riff on the legendary bromance stars Lauren Robinson and Libby Schap as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and follows them over the course of one long Saturday in Somerville as they fight, reminisce and hallucinate a lot more than normal when confronted with the screenplay that will change their lives.

Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the UK, and the cast is now bringing the good time to Boston. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to The Rockwell for a drunken twist on "Romeo and Juliet", because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]
