Archives - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

by Tom Stoppard

Directed by Michael McArdle

Saturday 1st – Saturday 8th May 1976 in the Auditorium

Shakespeare as folklore. An erudite comedy, punning, far-fetched, leaping from depth to dizziness. A Hamlet variant but unlike any other you may have encountered. Tom Stoppard’s supremely brilliant debut and the first play in theatrical history with a pair of attendant lords in the lead.

This play should be seen, for it is unique.
