About This Show

In Rosencrantz & Guilderstern Are Dead, Tom Stoppard’s brilliant dark comedy uses two supporting characters from Hamlet as its inspiration. As the friends gamble for flipped coins, the seeming suspension of the laws of probability leads them to musings on identity, life, death, and fate. Why can’t they recall anything beyond that morning when they were urgently summoned from their beds? Where are they going? What will happen next? Do they have a choice? Do any of us?
