Rosencrantz and guildenstern are dead


Written by: Tom Stoppard
Directed by Amy Penne

Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet - as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, reality and illusion intermix, fate leads our heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
