Shorewood Drama presents "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead"

Tom Stoppard (award-winning playwright and screenwriter of Shakespeare in Love and Empire of the Sun) authored this comic masterpiece that retells the story of Shakespeare's HAMLET from backstage, focusing on two of the famous play's most insignificant characters.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are college friends of the Prince of Denmark. They find themselves called to court by King Claudius to explain Hamlet's strange behavior after the suspicious death of his father.

Wandering aimlessly backstage, they view the story of HAMLET from a new perspective & ask the big questions: Are we powerless bystanders? Or can we have an effect on the world?

When: May 1, 2, 7, 8 & 9 at 7:30 pm
Where: Shorewood H.S. Theater
