Irresistibly funny and wildly absurdist, Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern is a timeless masterpiece. It is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of two of the minor characters. Stoppard recasts Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as heroes of their own play, and as the story of Hamlet plays out all around them, they struggle to figure out what is happening, what it all means, and whether they can escape their ultimate fate. As this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role in the story of their own lives, they do so in a world where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads them to the tragic but inevitable conclusion.
Recommended for patrons ages 8 and up. Children under four years of age, including babes in arms, will not be admitted.
