Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Peter Stein

The play concerns the misadventures and musings of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters from William Shakespeare's Hamlet who are childhood friends of the prince, focusing on their actions with the events of Hamlet as background. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is structured as the inverse ofHamlet; the title characters are the leads, not supporting players, and Hamlet himself has only a small part. The duo appears on stage here when they are off-stage in Shakespeare's play, with the exception of a few short scenes in which the dramatic events of both plays coincide. In Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are used by the King in an attempt to discover Hamlet's motives and to plot against him. Hamlet, however, mocks them derisively and outwits them, so that they, rather than he, are executed in the end. Thus, from Rosencrantz's and Guildenstern's perspective, the action in Hamlet is largely nonsensical and comical.

Continuing Education

By Sharon Gavin
Directed by Carl Dahlquist

(Continuing Education is this season's selection from Page to Stage IV.)

The Latin phrase Ancora Imparo translates to “I am always learning.”  The quote is attributed to one of the world’s greatest minds, Michelangelo, who is claimed to have lived these words until the end of his life.

Rose Hawthorne, Layla Bainer, and Megan Horne – the women of Continuing Education, HART’s Page to Stage selection – are always learning, also. Sometimes in spite of their academic institution…and themselves.

Thrown together by circumstance, the three women bond, form a sorority of sorts and, with the men in – and out – of their lives, rally to preserve a situation that allows them to continue to grow, learn, and get down with The Bard. 

Performing July 8 - 24, 2016
