SUMMARY

First performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1966 and then staged at the National in 1967, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is the play that introduced Tom Stoppard's classic blend of wit and poigancy to the world and launched the career of one of the most celebrated playrights of recent times.

Taking place in the 'wings', so to speak, of Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead takes two of the minor characters of Shakespeare's play and puts them centre stage. On the edge of the action - and sometimes caught up in it - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern struggle to understand the who, why and where of their situation, as they inevitably march along the path that destiny has written for them.

Tom Stoppard's masterful play touches upon chance, existence, death and theatre itself with great humour, depth and sincerity.
