Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
August 2 to October 5, 2013 (Up the Hill)
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by James Bohnen
Opening night: August 10 at 8 p.m.
Hamlet's two smallest players make the big time. But in this play - their play - they take center stage as they sort through the rules of existence, friendship and free will. Endearing, savage and very, very funny.
