Directed by Kara-Lynn Vaeni

Tom Stoppard’s internationally celebrated play won the Tony Award and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best play. It focuses on Hamlet from the perspective of the two flummoxed courtiers, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who are bewildered by the action surrounding them. Part Shakespearean tragedy, part Laurel and Hardy comedy routine, and part Waiting for Godot absurdity, it leads its two honorable, adventurous and inept characters to their unfortunate, unavoidable fate.
