ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD by Tom Stoppard
November 12th, 2019
Director: Ron Cohen
In Tom Stoppard’s best-known absurdist work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern ramble obliviously through life as the events of William Shakespeare’s HAMLET unfold around them. While visiting their old friend Hamlet, the pair engage in an ongoing philosophical debate about free will versus predestination, each trying to prove absurd positions through misbegotten experiments. Meanwhile, the clueless friends attempt to make sense of the peculiar goings-on in the castle, where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
