Ilkay Silk returns to TST to direct Sir Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

In this witty existential tragicomedy, the spotlight is turned on the minor characters of Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Follow Hamlet’s childhood friends turned conspirators as they weave their way through the plot of Hamlet, unaware of their scripted lives and their inability to deviate from them.

Full of philosophical inquiries that rival those of its counterpart, Hamlet, R&G is sure to leave you as perplexed as you are entertained.

The Black Box Theatre. November 22-25, 2017 at 7:30pm (+2:00pm Sat.). $10 regular / $5 students and seniors.
