Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Paul Revaz
April 17-19, 24-26 at 7:30 p.m.
Friday, April 18 is University of Memphis faculty, staff and alumni night. With valid ID, faculty, staff and alumni are admitted free.

“Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” is an absurdist take on the story of Hamlet…as told from the skewed and unexpected perspective of two minor characters - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Comedy ensues as the two oft-confused supporting players take center stage bewildered by their mission and their reason for being. Madcap humor, witty wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.
