Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have been sent for, they know that for certain. They can’t remember much else.

Pine Tree Players is pleased to present Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard, directed by Lexi Berry as part of the Canmore Summer Theatre Festival.

Please bring your own seating, blankets and festival chairs are preferred.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead is a fantastically witty, tragicomic exploration of Shakespeare’s Hamlet from the perspective of Hamlet’s childhood friends: a pair of characters who exist only to deliver a letter, and then lose their heads.

Audiences of all ages will enjoy the twists and turns of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s journey to discover the cause of Hamlet's madness and their own purpose in the world.

CONTENT WARNING: Depictions of armed conflict in the form of sword fighting; discussions of suicide, murder, death; mentions of sexual assault and prostitution.


The performance on Friday July 22 will have live audio description provide by Mark Hopkins in partnership with Inside Out Theatre.
