Hamlet is turned topsy-turvy in this brilliant modern comedic masterpiece that thrusts Shakespeare’s two minor characters to the forefront with no rules except one: they are destined to die. Reality and illusion mix as bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are trapped in a universe where their lives are left to chance with the flip of a coin. Can our hapless protagonists triumph in a battle of wits, escape their fate, and make sense of a senseless world?
Neptune welcomes actors Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan to Neptune Theatre in the title roles of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, or perhaps Guildenstern & Rosencrantz!
“We are thrilled that these two internationally known actors have agreed to reunite, on stage this time, in a modern classic,’ says Artistic Director Jeremy Webb. “It really is a beautiful fit, and audiences will delight in seeing them performing together again and in such a strong play. They will be surrounded by a terrific supporting cast and creative team.”
