Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard

This incredibly funny and absurd play will make you laugh, and make you rethink everything you know about Hamlet!

Chances are, you’re familiar with the story of Hamlet, the doomed prince of Denmark, but you probably forgot about his childhood friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern — minor characters in the play, who, like almost everyone else in Hamlet, meet an untimely end.  However, this time, they’re telling the story from their perspective.  This absurdist classic will test your wits and make you laugh!  You’ll never look at Hamlet the same way!

Directed by Mel Christian
