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 a comic 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 to the English countryside where upper-class manners and cucumber sandwiches are the name of the game. But for Jack and Algernon, all the rules get thrown out the window for the sake of love. Amid a whirlwind of mistaken identity and outrageous manipulations, the two men eventually discover, in more ways than one, what it truly means to be “earnest.”
