T. Schreiber Studio (Terry Schreiber, Artistic Director) opens its season with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning play directed by Cat Parker.
In his thought-provoking and witty play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Tom Stoppard riffs on the greatest mystery of all time – Death. And along the way he dabbles with such trifles as destiny and free will. Does life consist of a series of random events, or is it controlled by fate? In the end does the journey matter when the destination is the same? Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead follows Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Hamlet’s weary, yet bemused friends, as the tragedy in Elsinore unfolds. Performed in the round atop a directionless compass, T. Schreiber Studio’s production of this modern classic offers an especially intimate look at Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as they observe the crumbling world around them and march toward the Bard’s inescapable conclusion.
Eric Percival, winner of the 2008 Midtown International Theatre Festival Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Play, and Julian Elfer, who won the Outstanding Lead Actor Award at the 2009 New York Innovative Theatre Awards, star as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, respectively.
