“VERY FUNNY, VERY BRILLIANT, VERY CHILLING.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES
Hamlet’s good friends Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are summoned to Denmark to comfort their grieving friend. But on their journey they discover that nothing in their world is quite what it appears and must face their growing fears that their story may be destined for a tragic ending.
50 years after winning the Tony Award for best play, the play that made Tom Stoppard a household name lands on the ATP stage in a spooky and imaginative new production by Calgary’s own Shakespeare Company that daringly casts two women in the title roles.
IF YOU LIKE: Monty Python’s The Life of Brian, Fargo, Hamlet, Waiting for Godot
Audience Considerations: Contains scenes of comic violence and mature subject matter. Suggested for ages 14+.
