Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are DeadBook - 1967\
Tom Stoppard was catapulted into the front ranks of modem playwrights overnight when Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead opened in London in 1967. Its subsequent run in New York brought it the same enthusiastic acclaim, and the play has since been performed numerous times in the major theatrical centers of the world. It has won top honors for play and playwright in a poll of London Theater critics, and in its printed form it was chosen one of the "Notable Books of 1967" by the American Library Association.

From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, by Tom Stoppard, is an existentialist classic in three acts. Wholly original. Stoppard incorporates two characters from HAMLET for a modern treatment of the Shakespearean classic, while setting the audience up for the $64,000 question: What is the nature of existence? ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD is a test of boundaries both for existentialism and the stage.
