  • Joshua McGuire and Daniel Radcliffe in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Photograph: Tristram Kenton for the Observer W hen as a schoolgirl I saw Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead , the audacity of its unzipping of Hamlet bounced me through its talk of death.

  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern get “self-help” from the player, but as Stoppard points out, all of us are on the same boat. The difference is that some of us are willing to make more assumptions and cling to values than others.

  • Unconventional, bizarre, thought provoking and consistently funny, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead will certainly isolate certain audiences, in particular those with little tolerance for theater of the absurd.

  • David Haig, centre, in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Photograph: Tristram Kenton for the Guardian It is not so much the play’s absurdist philosophy that moves one as its obsession with death.

  • In ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, the play's the whole world as we watch two minor characters from Hamlet become embroiled in the court intrigues at Elsinore.

  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead weaves a subtle joke with remarkable wisdom that doesn't jump out and knock the viewer over. It is an elegant film that becomes increasingly humorous and satisfying over years.

  • Audience Reviews for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead A wonderfully witty film masterfully transferred from a marvellous stage script to the screen. The dialogue is constant and highly entertaining, the meshing of Stoppard's modern day speech of the original parts of the story and Shakespeare's original Hamlet practically seamless and masterfully worked.

  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead can be seen as Stoppard's answer to the question what are the minor characters of the play Hamlet doing while the tragic prince is agonizing and plotting? Stoppard's simple answer is "nothing".

  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead - The Old Vic. By Sir Tom Stoppard Rating: Let's hope that all those Harry Potter fans who have booked tickets to see Daniel Radcliffe in his latest stage ...

  • Tom Stoppard's play "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" is the most famous modern example of a tour de force in which the action in "Hamlet" is viewed through the eyes of two of the bit players, Hamlet's college friends, who accompany him on his trip to England. We know "Hamlet" is about Hamlet ...
