‘Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’ opens at Carthage College

9

Carthage College Theatre is turning a Shakespeare classic on its head with a clever and absurd Tony Award-winning comedy, opening today.

“Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” by Tom Stoppard, tells the tale of “Hamlet” from the bewildered perspective of two incidental characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The play follows them as they weave in and out of Hamlet’s troubled life, trying to make sense of their own.

“Part of the humor in the play is that they really have no idea what they’re doing there,” said director Neil Scharnick. “They know they’re supposed to find out what’s wrong with Hamlet, but it seems like everyone already knows what’s wrong with him. ... So you wonder, ‘why did these two have to show up?’ ”
