In the fall of 2022 the Performing Arts Department at College of the Siskiyous will present Tom Stoppard's comedic tour-de-force "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead". This is a fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world with no rules except one: they are destined to die. Trapped in a universe where the flip of a coin always comes up heads and pirates can pop-up anytime, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern engage in a battle of wits to try to escape their fate and make sense of a senseless world. where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
