Michaelmas Week 7
The play follows the philosophical, meandering and often comical conversations of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two incidental characters from Shakespeare's 'Hamlet', as they wait for something to happen to them. Whenever something does, it is in the form of encounters with other characters from 'Hamlet', which just serve to make the title duo question the bizarre nature of their lives further. Slowly they realise, that rather than being leads in their own story, they might just be disposable roles in someone else's.
