Carpenter Hall, Goddard Auditorium

Tom Stoppard has personally given The Acting Company the rights to tour his landmark TONY award-winning play. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern centers on the misadventures and musings of two minor characters—childhood friends of the Prince—from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The play is structured as the inverse of Hamlet; the title characters are the leads, not supporting players, and Hamlet himself has only a small part. Focusing on free will vs. determinism, the search for value and the impossibility of certainty, the play has a love for cleverness and language, treating it as a confounding system fraught with ambiguity to engage and delight the audience. A TONY winner and one of today’s most talented artists, John Rando (Broadway’s Urinetown, A Christmas Story) will direct this play for The Acting Company, as he did Trevor Nunn’s Comedy of Errors in 2001. Don’t miss your chance to see why The Acting Company, recipient of numerous awards including the TONY® Award for Excellence in Theater and The Obie, is the most respected and praised touring repertory theater in America.

Tickets required. $8/adults, $5/students and seniors.
