In October 2013, we performed Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly witty play ‘Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead’ at The Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel in The Paragon, Bath.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are summoned to attend Elsinore to help discover why Hamlet is acting so strangely. On the way they meet the Players as they prepare to perform for the Danish Court and thereby exposing Claudius’ treachery. We are hugely entertained by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s musings on the meaning of it all: is it a game of chance? What is the meaning of existence? Are the Players actually actors or are they there to indulge other pleasures? Does Hamlet really know who they are? When will it all end?
We are very thankful to Polly and the team at the Chapel for their help and support with the production.
