The final performance of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the second production in Trevor Nunn’s year as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Haymarket, is on Saturday 20 August 2011, as previously announced.

Following a three week run at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead starringSamuel Barnett and Jamie Parker,opened at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 21 June for a nine week run.  Set design is by Simon Higlett, with costumes by Fotini Dimou, lighting by Tim Mitchell, sound by Paul Groothuis and music by Steven Edis.  Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Deadis produced by the Chichester Festival Theatre, the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Triumph Entertainment Limited and Adam Zotovich. 

The full cast is Samuel Barnett (Rosencrantz) and Jamie Parker (Guildenstern), Chris Andrew Mellon (The Player), Michael Benz (Horatio), Fiona Gillies(Gertrude), Tom Golding (Fortinbras), Jack Hawkins (Hamlet), Andrew Jarvis (Polonius/Ambassador), Katherine Press (Ophelia) and James Simmons(Claudius) as well as Trevor Allan Davies, Tomm Coles, Jody Elen Machin, Zac Fox, Charlie Hamblett, Elisabeth Hopper, Greg Last, James Northcote, Stephen Pallister, Keith Thompson and Geoffrey Towers.

In Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, a verbally scintillating and richly inventive play, Stoppard retells Hamlet through the eyes of two of its minor characters.  Vaguely conscious that they are bit parts in a much bigger story of which they have no direct knowledge, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern hilariously and poignantly inhabit a world completely beyond their grasp.

Trevor Nunn’s opening production as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Haymarket was Flare Path.  FollowingRosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead Nunn will direct William Shakespeare’s The Tempest starring Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Lyndhurst and The Lion in Winter starring Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley.
