About ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD

The story of Hamlet is reimagined in this brilliant comedy that thrusts two minor characters to the forefront.

Prince Hamlet has been exiled to England by his treacherous uncle Claudius, who has murdered his brother (Hamlet's father) and crowned himself king. On his way to England in the company of his school friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Hamlet discovers they are carrying a letter from King Claudius that commands that Hamlet be put to death when he arrives in England. Hamlet rewrites the letter to command that instead, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern be put to death. He then escapes back to Denmark.

The bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are trapped in this absurdist universe where their lives are left to chance with the flip of a coin.

Can our hapless protagonists triumph in a battle of wits, escape their fate, and make sense of a senseless world?
