At Redland Park United Reform Church, Whiteladies Road, Clifton, Bristol, BS6 6SA



Bristol theatre lovers are offered the chance to enjoy this rarely performed tragi-comedy that tells the storyof two minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet. This show is cracking entertainment -outrageously funny in its sheer absurdity on one level while engaging in philosophical debate onanother. CADs reveal the journey of these two men on the road to certain death, a story that promises to be delightful, insightful and possibly frightful!




Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are portrayed as two buffoons, Hamlet's childhood friends, now out tobetray him at the behest of his evil stepfather, King Claudius. Yet they are the most inadequatespies and inept assassins imaginable and Hamlet will end up having the last laugh over their deadbodies.

CADs reveal the journey of these two men on the road to certain death, a story that promises to be delightful, insightful and possibly frightful!

We meet them floundering around in a world they do not understand. They find they cannot rememberwhy they are where they are and what they are doing. They can't even remember their own names.

Along with the nonsense they ramble, are contained some profound philosophical concepts, forStoppard enjoys playing with language and toying with ambiguity.

This show is an ideal choice for a rip-roaring evening of fun. Sit back and enjoy the ludicrousantics and word play of the characters. For theatre lovers who like Samuel Beckett's Waiting forGodot, then this is not to be missed, although this show can be appreciated on many differentlevels and is basically great value for money entertainment to lighten a winter's evening.

Performance details: 14th to 16th of February 2013 at the Redland Park United Reformed Church,

Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS6 6SA
