WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An intimate, limited-run presentation of Tom Stoppard's hauntingly hilarious classic. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Hamlet's hapless college pals, recruited by the king to kill their depressed friend, even though Hamlet is always a step ahead. Tom Stoppard brings their plight to center stage, following the pair as they are thrown again into their strange and eternally brief roles. Set amidst the illusionist craze of the Victorian era, Big Rodent's production of this classic show brings these two hopeless dreamers straight into our lives, where their struggle to understand parallels our oversaturated, overstressed society's constant battle for a glimpse of meaning. Presented in an intimate 60-seat black box, this production might be your only chance to see Stoppard's work so up close and personal. Watch them disappear right in front of your very eyes!
