I grew up in the era of plays by Pinter and Albee but somehow missed this great absurdist work of Tom Stoppard. The dialogue is amazingly witty, but there are also messages to be heard. Staging was very clever; costumes not so much. Good acting...continued

More Information



Audiences will laugh (and cry) their way into the New Year with Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning comedy, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Zany humor, quicksilver wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.

SPT’s revival, directed by Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock, casts local actresses in traditionally male roles. Angela DiMarco (The 13th of Paris_) and Alyssa Keene (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol_) take on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, with Heather Hawkins (End Days, Mauritius) as The Player.

The cast also features Matt Aguayo, Ray Gonzalez, Julie Jamieson (Arms and the Man_), Kenna Kettrick (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever_), Patrick Lennon (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol_), Jessa Lowe, John Murray (_Of Mice and Men, Mauritius) and Duncan Weinland (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever).

About the Ticket Supplier: Seattle Public Theater

Founded in 1988, Seattle Public Theater was originally a small company that primarily toured plays in local Seattle public schools and worked with adult and at-risk youth populations to create socially conscious theater. In 2000, Seattle Public was chosen by the City of Seattle in a competitive bidding process to be the resident theater company at the historic Bathhouse. Since then Seattle Public has had a remarkable rebirth to become one of Seattle's premiere mid-sized theaters, renowned for both an ambitious education program as well as high-quality professional productions.
