ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Cat Parker

T. Schreiber Studio, recipient of 5 2009 Back Stage Readers Poll Awards, including Best Off-Off Broadway Theatre, and nominated for 5 NY Innovative Theatre Awards, presents the Tony Award-winning play ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD.

In his thoughtful and witty play, Tom Stoppard riffs on the greatest mystery of all time – Death. And along the way he dabbles with such trifles as destiny and free will. Does life consist of a series of random events, or is it controlled by fate? In the end does the journey matter when the destination is the same? ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD follows Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Hamlet’s bewildered friends, as the tragedy in Elsinore unfolds. Performed in the round atop a directionless compass, T. Schreiber Studio’s production of this modern classic offers an especially intimate look at Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as they observe the crumbling world around them and march toward the Bard’s inescapable conclusion.
