Hamlet is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature,
with a story capable of endless retelling and adaptation by others.
Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead
expands upon the exploits
of two of Hamlet’s minor characters “in the wings.”
Presenting these two plays in rotating repertory
is an exciting opportunity for Tucson audiences.
The same 14-member cast is on stage for both productions
and audiences can see the plays six weeks apart or on the same day.
