Shakespeare plays performed 70 different ways

Help

Many of Shakespeare's best known works are due to be performed in very new and different ways, as part of the London 2012 Festival.

The World Shakespeare Festival will feature 70 productions of the Bard's plays translated into languages from all over the world.

The event will include a sign language version of Love's Labour's Lost, and Hamlet performed by a Lithuanian rockstar.
