Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

By Tom Stoppard

Directed by Geoff Elliott

Hamlet is turned topsy turvy in this brilliant, Tony Award®-winning comedy that thrusts Shakespeare’s two minor characters to the frontlines with no rules except one: they are destined to die. Trapped in a universe where the flip of a coin always comes up heads and pirates can pop-up anytime, can our hapless protagonists triumph in a battle of wits, escape their fate, and make sense of a senseless world?
