rosencrantz and guildenstern

What does the world of Hamlet look like from the viewpoint of two minor characters? Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are just trying to live their little lives when they get thrust onto the world stage and into a tragedy they can’t comprehend. Playing witty word games to pass their time offstage, they turn Shakespeare’s masterpiece into Stoppard’s existential comedy. So who’s to blame when they end up dead? Directed by Suzanne Burgoyne, the play runs February 24–27 at 7:30 p.m., and on February 28 at 2:00 p.m. at the Rhynsburger Theatre.
