The Green Room presents "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" by Tom Stoppard. It is an absurdist play that concerns the misadventures and musings of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters from Hamlet, searching for meaning in a frustratingly ambiguous world as the events of Hamlet happen around them. Come see our show! We hope to see you there!
