Winter 2020: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern

Performed as part of Three One-Act Plays.


A burlesque of Shakespeare's "Hamlet". W.S. Gilbert's play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern first appeared in the periodical "Fun" in 1874, but was apparently not performed in public until 1891. A benefit performance in 1904 had a cast that included Gilbert himself, George Bernard Shaw, Francis Burnand, and Anthony Hope (author of "The Prisoner of Zenda", among other well-known works); an amateur performance in 1900 had featured P.G. Wodehouse as Guildenstern.

Director: Charles Palella
