Main Street Arts will be taking two minor characters from Shakespeare on a tour of Windham County in its fall production of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
The MSA cast includes Jonathan Reid and Michael Duffin as the leads, with back up from Ron Bos-Lun, Libby McAwley, Falko Schilling, Allie McGahie, Simon Bupp-Chickering, and many more.
Stoppard’s rapier wit challenges the mind as it tickles the funny bone. As they question their fates, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern succumb to the whimsy of fate and the inevitability of death. The cast brings to life this absurd yet poignant tale of two characters as they search for their place in the grand and not-so-grand scheme of things.
“In one bound, Mr. Stoppard is asking to be considered as among the finest English-speaking writers of our stage, '' wrote veteran New York Times critic Clive Barnes, who described the work as “a most remarkable and thrilling play.''
