A story about this — 7 years ago
Cross Waiting for Godot with Hamlet and you have the story of two minor characters in Hamlet. Ros and Guild are pawns in a larger drama that almost passes them by (and they often wish that the tragicomedy that is playing out would leave them alone). Wonderfully reimagined work – the Bard would have been proud. The playfulness of the language, the inexorable narrative, the vitality of the story – the prince of Denmark talking to himself pondering action, the skewering of convention, history and theatre itself deconstructed repeatedly. What more can you want of drama? To be or not to be, that is the question. Stoppard deserves all the accolades: ingenious, brilliant etc.
