This renowned theater troupe presents a modern masterpiece that explores the fundamental mystery of our existence. Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning play turns Shakespeare's Hamlet on its head by examining the misfortunes and musings of two ill-fated, minor characters. This humorous work follows Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, the Danish Prince's childhood friends, who are portrayed as pawns and clowns in the King's plot against his nephew. Much of the action takes place "in the wings" of Shakespeare's play, as the confused courtiers try to make sense of the dramatic events unfolding among the royal family and their own involvement in them. Tony Award winner and Broadway veteran John Rando directs The Acting Company in its performance of this witty and engaging tragic comedy.
