Shakes on a Plane (setting the Guinness World Record)

23 April, 2014 – It’s official! IAM’s very own William Meredith along with fellow Reduced Shakespeare Company actors Simon Cole and Gary Fannin have set a Guinness World Record for the highest theatrical performance by acting continuously, at 39,000ft, for almost an hour during the 700-mile journey from Gatwick to Verona, Italy in celebration of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. The production, which took place on board a special edition easyJet plane, complete with a 10ft image of the Bard on the fuselage, was part of a wider campaign to make April 23 National William Shakespeare Day.
