What’s On: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, presented by Auckland Theatre Company
Kensington Swan season of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, presented by Auckland Theatre Company, 11-26 September, ASB Waterfront Theatre, Auckland
Oscar-winning screenwriter and playwright Tom Stoppard turns Shakespeare’s Hamlet inside out in this well-loved absurdist romp.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern find themselves as the headline act in Shakespeare’s greatest play. There’s no escaping their fate as pawns in Hamlet’s game of thrones, but before they are outwitted, the duo grab the spotlight as fearlessly funny commentators on their madcap predicament.
An exhilaratingly witty modern classic, don’t miss this award-winning masterpiece of slapstick existentialism.
