About Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning Best Play arrives in a marvelously funny, spectacularly beautiful new production. This modern-day classic tragicomedy imagines the lives of two minor characters from Shakespeare’s "Hamlet," Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. As the story unfolds, they voice their confusion about the play that’s being performed without them, untangling bigger questions about life and death, reality and art. It’s all from the pen of Academy Award and four-time Best Play Tony Award winner Stoppard ("Shakespeare in Love," "The Real Thing," and "Arcadia"), and directed by the Huntington’s own Artistic Director, Peter DuBois.
