Brainy Bibliophiles: Re-Visionings: Another look at Hamlet

December 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Rosenkrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (drama) by Tom Stoppard
Stoppard’s play is an absurdist, existential tragicomedy that is “the most famous modern example of a tour de force in which the action in ‘Hamlet’ is viewed through the eyes of two of the bit players, Hamlet’s college friends, who accompany him on his trip to England.  We know ‘Hamlet’ is about Hamlet. They think it’s about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.” – Roger Ebert
Registrants are encouraged to read or listen to the script.  The book is available for checkout; the e-book and audiobooks are also available on Hoopla.
