Tom Stoppard’s classic Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is coming to Sydney Theatre Company this August.
Pairing Stoppard/Shakespeare master Toby Schmitz with rocker/West End Judas Tim Minchin, the Simon Phillips (Arcadia, Love Never Dies)-directed production follows two hapless courtiers that were childhood friends of Hamlet in their last days, running parallel to the main action of the Shakespearean tragedy. It should be riotously entertaining, dramatic and more than a little absurd. The season kicks off on August 6 and runs until September 14.
