Kensington Swan season of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead
By Tom Stoppard
“Stoppard’s classic fizzes with life.” - The Guardian
Oscar-winning screenwriter and playwright Tom Stoppard turns Shakespeare’s Hamlet inside out in this hilarious slapstick comedy.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern find themselves as the headline act in Shakespeare’s greatest play. There’s no escaping their fate as pawns in Hamlet’s game of thrones, but before they are outwitted, the duo grab the spotlight as fearlessly funny commentators on their madcap predicament.
Delivered with wit and wisdom, this dazzlingly irreverent modern classic is a must-see for every theatre lover.
