“Stoppard’s classic fizzes with life” - The Guardian

What if two minor characters in Hamlet were given centre stage? In a dashing reversal of misfortune, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Hamlet’s student friends, now find themselves as the headline act in Shakespeare’s greatest play. There’s still no escaping their fate as pawns in Hamlet’s game of thrones, but before they are outwitted, the duo grab the spotlight and seize the moment as fearlessly funny commentators on their absurd predicament and the chaos of the universe.

From Oscar-winning playwright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love), this immensely innovative work is a fresh inside-out perspective on Shakespeare and the comedy of tragedy itself. Delivered in a bantering, bickering style with wit and wisdom to burn, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is one of the savviest plays ever conceived – a dazzlingly irreverent modern classic every theatre lover must see.
