About this show

Considered a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead catapulted Tom Stoppard to the front ranks of modern playwrights when it opened in London in 1967. It 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. This maelstrom of metaphysics, existentialism, and vaudevillian slapstick, by one of the great contemporary playwrights, takes off from Shakespeare's masterpiece, Hamlet, and never looks back.
