Intelligent comedy based on two minor characters from Hamlet. The play turns the spotlight onto the apparently inconsequential experiences of the two minor courtiers in Shakespeare's Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. They are by turn comic, tragic and philosophical as they try to make sense of the pointless and arbitrary nature of their own existence.Performers Samuel Barnett (Rosencrantz), Michael Benz (Horatio), Tomm Coles (Courtier 2), Chris Andrew Mellon (The Player), Trevor Allan Davies (Player 7/Lucianus/Claudius-poisoner), Zac Fox (Player 5), Fiona Gillies (Gertrude), Tom Golding (Fortinbras), Charlie Hamblett (Alfred), Jack Hawkins (Hamlet), Elisabeth Hopper (Courtier 4), Andrew Jarvis (Polonius/Ambassador), Greg Last (Player 6), Jody Elen Machin (Courtier 3), Chris Andrew Mellon (Player King), James Northcote (Player 4), Stephen Pallister (Courtier 1), Jamie Parker (Guildenstern), Katherine Press (Ophelia), James Simmons (Claudius), Keith Thompson (musician).
