Bard record up in the air.
The Bard's plays were performed under the title Shakes on a Plane in front of a captive audience on an easyJet flight from Gatwick, West Sussex, to Verona, Italy, in celebration of the 450th anniversary of his birth.
Actors Simon Cole, 38, Gary Fannin, 45, and William Meredith, 40, are believed to have set a Guinness World Record for the highest theatrical performance by acting continuously, at more than 37,000ft, for almost an hour of the 700-mile journey.
The performance has been recorded and is expected to be officially verified in the next week, an easyJet spokeswoman said.
