Read Rosencrantz and Guidenstern are dead, beacause existentialist comedy rocks. That is all.

Better yet, WATCH it, because plays are better seen than read.

(1967) Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is one of Stoppard's most famous works — a comedic play which casts two minor characters from Hamlet as its leads but with the same lack of power to affect their world or exterior circumstances as they have in Shakespeare's original. Hamlet's role is similarly reversed in terms of his stage time and lines, but it is in his wake that the heroes drift helplessly toward their inevitable demise. Rather than shaping events, they pass the time playing witty word games and pondering the hows, wheres, whys and whos of their predicament. It is similar in many ways to Samuel Beckett's absurdist Waiting for Godot, particularly in the main characters' lack of purpose and comprehension of their situation.
