Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Hamlet’s hapless college pals, recruited by the king to kill their depressed friend, even though Hamlet is always a step ahead. Tom Stoppard brings their plight to center stage, following the pair as they are thrown again into their strange and eternally brief roles. Big Rodent’s production of this classic show brings these two hopeless dreamers straight into our lives, where their struggle to understand parallels our oversaturated, overstressed society's constant battle for a glimpse of meaning. Set in the Victorian age of illusion and excess, this simple & intimate production of features all of the obscure 1890's folk hits and vaudevillian magician's routines you need. Presented in a 50-seat black box, this production might be your only chance to see Stoppard's work so up close and personal. Watch these two dreamers disappear right in front of your very eyes...
