Theatre Poster for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are DeadRosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

By Tom Stoppard. Directed by G. Thomas Cochran.

Sopris Theatre Company Productions: Oct. 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 22 and 29 at 2 p.m.
New Space Theatre, CMC-Spring Valley

Winner of the 1968 Tony Award and the 1968 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play

Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. This Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
