Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead


Show Synopsis

Tom Stoppard's reputation as a playwright was made when his dazzling debut, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, opened at the National Theatre. Fifty years later, the play's wit, stagecraft and verbal verve remain as exhilarating as they were in 1967 as the two ill-fated attendant lords from Shakespeare's Hamlet take centre stage, musing on the purpose of existence and its end. This new edition publishes to coincide with a fiftieth anniversary production at The Old Vic, London, and contains a new preface by the author.

brilliantly innovative

What a fabulous idea, to use the best of the Bard as an underpinning for one's own's crisp & original & a landmark script. It's a must for anyone interested in contemporary drama.
