Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdist,
existentialist tragicomedy by Tom Stoppard, first staged at the
Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1966. The play expands upon the
exploits of two minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet, the
courtiers Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The action of Stoppard's
play takes place mainly "in the wings" of Shakespeare's, with brief
appearances of major characters from Hamlet who enact fragments of
the original's scenes. Between these episodes the two protagonists
voice their confusion at the progress of events of which-occurring
onstage without them in Hamlet-they have no direct knowledge.
