- Enjoy classic entertainment in Bath with the Shakespeare Unplugged Festival

January 14, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that people staying in Cotswolds hotels in February who are wondering how they can while away the winter evenings could be in for a treat if they head to Bath.

The city is hosting the Shakespeare Unplugged Festival, which will run from February 20th until March 13th 2010.

Billed as "an extraordinary collection of Shakespeare's plays deconstructed and reconstructed for a 21st Century audience", it is guaranteed to brighten up a visit to the region.

The productions will be performed at three venues across the city - Theatre Royal Bath, The Egg and Ustinov Theatre.

Some of the more unusual offerings include tiny ninja versions of Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet by New York's Tiny Ninja Theater and a Greyscale production of Coriolanus as a work in progress.

Tickets for all the performances are available directly from the venues and vary in price, although they start from £5.

Anyone who is a Shakespeare fan may want to explore some more of the region and take a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon, where the Royal Shakespeare Company regularly put on shows.

The famous playwright was born in the town and actors at the Globe Theatre on the banks of the River Avon frequently walk the boards and recite his best-known works.
