In this witty, erudite comedy, the author has had the brilliant idea of taking two of Shakespeare's classic nonentities - Hamlet's school friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern - and elevating them to the center of dramatic action. By the same token, Mr. Stoppard has relegated Hamlet, Ophelia, Claudius, Gertrude, and Polonius to secondary rols, mere foils for the actions and springs for the ruminations of the two principal characters. "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead [is] verbally dazzling . . . the most exciting, witty intellectual treat imaginable." - Edith Oliver, The New Yorker

(Key Words: Tom Stoppard, Hamlet, William Shakespeare, Gertrude, Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, Ophelia, Claudius, Polonius, Theater, Theatre, Plays, Comedy).
