    Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

    Tom Stoppard

    December 3-5 and December 9-11 at 8:00 p.m.
    Studio Theatre
    Hamlet, Shakespeares greatest drama, is retold from the perspective of his schoolmates, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, in Tom Stoppards comedic masterpiece. Equal parts Laurel and Hardy, Waiting for Godot and classic Shakespeare, Stoppards scintillating wit, far-reaching imagination and astonishing skill with words trace the journey of these fascinating characters as they struggle to avoid the inevitability of the bards tragic conclusion. We know Hamlet is about Hamlet. They think it is about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. There is an old joke about the actor who is hired to play the gravedigger in Hamlet “Whats it about?” his wife asks. “Its about a gravedigger who meets a prince,” he says.
