WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Using the same set, costumes, and performers, the Wilma will tell the story of Hamlet through the eyes of two very different characters. In Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, which will mark the Wilma's 11th production of a work by Tom Stoppard, minor characters take center stage as they journey on a boat taking Prince Hamlet to England with players from the royal court. As these characters try to escape the fate that Shakespeare has already scripted for them, arguments of free will and determinism abound, all set to the constant travel game of flipping coins. In this battle of wits, Stoppard's characteristic wordplay and case of mistaken identities creates a spectacle that's philosophical, clownish, and complete with a pirate-ambush.
