Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

  • ;

This Tom Stoppard play centers on the misadventures and musings of two minor characters — childhood friends of the Prince — from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. In Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the title characters are the leads, not supporting players, and Hamlet himself has only a small part. The duo appears onstage in this play when they are off-stage in Shakespeare’s play. Stoppard’s clever language focuses on free will versus determinism, the search for value and certainty in an uncertain world.
