Description

Years before he won an Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love", playwright Tom Stoppard took home a Tony and rocketed to stardom with "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead". In this absurdist tragicomedy, Stoppard turns Shakespeare's "Hamlet" inside out, telling the story from two minor characters in the play: the Danish prince's school pals. The Laurel and Hardy-like pair are only incidentally involved in the main action of the play and spend most of their time engaging in Stoppard's signature witty repartee and slapstick comedy as they move slowly and unavoidably toward their fates. Now, American Shakespeare Center brings this modern classic to the stage of Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton.
