Princeton Summer Theater’s third show opens this Thursday, July 14th with Tom Stoppard’s tragicomedy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

Directed by Emma Watt (Princeton University Class of 2013), Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a wonderfully inventive behind-the-scenes look into Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Told through the worm’s-eye view of the once minor characters Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Stoppard’s play takes us to a place where reality and illusion intermix. Join the protagonists on an absurdist tale of musings and misadventures as they discover their inevitable fate.

Talkbacks will occur on Friday, July 22 with the director, cast, and Robert Sandberg, Professor of Theater and English at Princeton University, and on Friday July 30, with the cast and Princeton Summer Theater Artistic Director Ogemdi Ude.
