Alverno Heights Academy Presents "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead"
Alverno Heights Academy proudly presents "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead." The play is an absurdist, existential tragicomedy by Tom Stoppard. The play expands upon the exploits of two minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet, the courtiers Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The main setting is Denmark.
The action of Stoppard's play takes place mainly "in the wings" of Shakespeare's, with brief appearances of major characters from Hamlet who enact fragments of the original's scenes. Between these episodes the two protagonists voice their confusion at the progress of events occurring onstage without them in Hamlet, of which they have no direct knowledge.
Alverno's production will run November 7, 8, and 9 at the Sierra Madre Playhouse at 7:00 p.m. There is also a Saturday matinee on Saturday, November 9 at 2:00 p.m.
