Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Tom Stoppard

Tom Stoppard’s surreal comic masterpiece, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, comes to the ADC in September. Listed by the New York Times as one of the top twenty plays ever written, ‘two of the minor characters from Hamlet’, as Stoppard himself calls them, take centre stage as they arrive in Elsinore to glean what afflicts young Hamlet.

That most famous of all plays becomes the sub-plot and the hapless pair are forced to grapple with a world they no longer understand and over which they have no control.

A satirical take on whether ‘to be or not to be’ is actually the question, and indeed how you even know when you are not… 

Please note the earlier start time for this show's evening performances.
