The Royal Shakespeare Theatre

The world renowned Royal Shakespeare Company stages regular performances of Shakespeare's plays at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford upon Avon.
The company works on a repertory system, so you could stay in Stratford for a few days and see three or four different plays. The RSC does focus mainly on Shakespeare, but there are other productions too, from new modern writing to plays by Shakespeare's contemporaries.  
Actors such as Peter O'Toole and Richard Burton have trod the boards here. The standard is invariably very high, and sometimes you get a classic.
