FVCC Theatre Department Performs “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead”

“Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” is the tale of “Hamlet” as told from the worm’s-eye view of two minor characters in the classic play by William Shakespeare. In Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where reality and illusion intermix, eventually leading to a tragic end for the two heroes.
The New York Daily News has described the play as, “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.”
