Tom Stoppard's absurdist masterpiece, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, tells the familiar tale of Hamlet in a very different way: by thrusting two of its minor characters into the narrative spotlight. Childhood friends of Hamlet who factored only briefly in Shakespeare's original tragedy, this existentialist comedy focuses on Rosencratz and Guildenstern during the times they were "offstage" -- showing both of them to be largely unaware of the dire events taking place on the periphery of their lives. A further reimagining of a reimagining, this production is set in a steampunk world, where visual aesthetics that blend Victorian elements with steam-powered machinery make for an even more intriguing spin on one of the most treasured tragedies of all time.
