What is currently on at Oxford Playhouse (V803)

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

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.
Author Tom Stoppard
