Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Professor Paul Bernstein

November 19th – November 23rd
Black Box Studio

 

Tom Stoppard is one of the world’s greatest, most prolific living playwrights, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is his pivotal masterpiece. It is wildly absurd, exceptionally witty, and remarkably reverent to several theater traditions at once.

Experience Hamlet from the unlikely point of view of two minor characters, Prince Hamlet’s old college friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, as they attempt to understand their roles in an Elsinore turned upside-down. What becomes certain is the impossibility of certainty itself. This interdisciplinary production combines acting and filmic design in a way that’s sure to turn one’s thoughts around and around and around!

The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Professor Kenneth Elliott

April 15th – April 19th
Walter K. Gordon Theater

 

Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece is an escapade of epic proportions. Full of social satire, impeccable wit, clever wordplay, and high farce, The Importance of Being Earnest retains its status as one of the funniest plays ever written.

Take a trip into the English countryside where manners, social class, and cucumber sandwiches are the name of the game. But for Jack and Algernon, all the rules and statutes of the society they live in get thrown out the window for the sake of love. Amidst a whirlwind of mistaken identity and hysterical manipulations, the two men eventually discover, in more ways than one, what it truly means to be “earnest.”

 

Performances: 

Wednesday, April 15th at 7:30pm
Thursday, April 16th at 7:30pm
Friday, April 17th at 7:30pm
Saturday, April 18th at 7:30pm
