Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead
October 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - October 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pm UTC-6
Winner of the 1968 Tony Award and the 1968 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. Written by Tom Stoppard
This Sopris Theatre Company production is directed by Tom Cochran. In the leading roles, Nick Garay plays Rosencrantz and Brendan Cochran plays Guildenstern.
Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. This Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
