I am a huge fan of the play and this was a marvelous production. I plan to go again. Wonderful acting, insightful staging. Great casting!

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

Description

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).
