Upstage Theatre Presents Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Directed by Brigitte Demelo ’18
Feb 8–Feb 11, Sun/Thu/Fri/Sat
Diana Chapman Walsh Auditorium, Alumnae Hall
All events are free and open to the public

In this absurdist, existentialist tragicomedy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet are sent for by the king and queen of Denmark to glean what is afflicting their dear old friend, Prince Hamlet himself. Along the way, they meet a company of tragedians who enact The Murder of Gonzago for the court but perhaps are playing at something more what they originally seem to be. Tom Stoppard’s topsy-turvy take on one of the most famous plays in the English language offers laughs, drama, and a great deal to think about when you leave the theater.
