Full of dazzling wordplay and theatrical invention, Stoppard’s comic masterpiece reveals a surprising new take on Shakespeare’s most famous play.

Tom Stoppard is one of Britain’s greatest playwrights. His brilliant debut, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, launched an award-winning writing career that has included the plays Jumpers, Travesties and Arcadia, as well as screenplays including Empire of the Sun and Shakespeare in Love.

English Touring Theatre is renowned for the clarity and style of its productions, and director Stephen Unwin was the winner of the Globe’s Sam Wanamaker Award in 2003.
