Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Paul Revaz
April 17-19, 24-26 at 7:30 p.m.
Friday, April 18 is University of Memphis faculty, staff and alumni night. With valid
ID, faculty, staff and alumni are admitted free.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdist take on the story of Hamlet…as
told from the skewed and unexpected perspective of two minor characters — Rosencrantz
and Guildenstern. Comedy ensues as the two oftconfused supporting players take center
stage bewildered by their mission and their reason for being. Madcap humor, witty
wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story
of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.
