Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

"The play's the thing..." Shakespeare's iconic drama, Hamlet, unfolds around two of its minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who unwittingly lead the bewildering action from behind the scenes. Through the bizarre encounters and episodes they witness, these hapless heroes try to make sense of everything from the meaning of life and free will to who they really are, before they shuffle off this mortal coil...

Tom Stoppard's absurdly hilarious modern classic unfolds with infamous wit, wonderfully weird characters and razor sharp dialogue.
