Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Saint Sebastian Players at Saint Bonaventure Church
1625 W. Diversey, Chicago, IL, 60614 | directions
773-404-7922
by Tom Stoppard

The play concerns the misadventures and musings of two minor characters from Hamlet who are childhood friends of the prince, focusing on their actions, with the events of Hamlet as background. The duo are the leading characters in this version, appearing on stage here when they are off-stage in Shakespeare’s play, except a few times when the events of both plays coincide. In Hamlet, the King uses Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to discover Hamlet’s motives and plot against him. Hamlet, however, mocks them derisively and outwits them. Thus, the action in Hamlet, while typically viewed as tragic, is largely nonsensically comical from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s perspective
