3DaysPrior is proud to present Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead as a part of The Brick’s Shakespeare in the Theater Festival.
Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive comedy of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play.
In 3DaysPrior’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, binaries crumble; 87 coins come down heads 87 times in a row, women are men and men are women and some are neither, south is down, there are no answers, and no one is quite sure whether Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are alive or already dead. With women in traditionally male roles such as Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, Hamlet, and the Player, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead becomes an absurd inerrogation of the nature of gender and masculinity and their intersection with privilege and class.
