ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
written by Tom Stoppard
directed by Carmen-maria Mandley and Heather J. Hackford
July 30 – August 3, 2008
Common Ground Theatre, Durham
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern was the fourth installment of Bare Theatre’s wildly popular Rogue Company, an annual conservatory program aimed at giving young artists the chance to perform onstage in a safe and professional environment. Rogue Company members typically range in age from middle school or younger to college students.
This play, which made Stoppard famous, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of two minor characters who appear in William Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Hamlet. The two unwitting protagonists stumble through a world that has already been written, intersecting with bits of Shakespeare’s play, and they attempt to question a destiny that is ultimately final.
