MPC Theatre Company (Monteray) presents Tom Stoppard's "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead". Short article describes the many levels of the play: "You can take the play on three different levels," he explains. "If you know 'Hamlet,' you'll enjoy seeing the play from the unique and fresh perspective of its two most insignificant characters. If you're unfamiliar with 'Hamlet' you will still enjoy all the verbal word play, gamesmanship and physical humor. Plus," he said, "there are the metaphysical, existential, and philosophical aspects of the play. Free will versus fatalism. The 'why are we here?' stuff."

The William Shakespeare Weblog is looking for contributions. If you want to comment or follow-up on something which has been mentioned or you have something which you think might of interest to readers please get in touch. We would particularly like to hear from anyone connected with a production of one of Will's plays for a prospective diary feature. Above all else Shakespeare's words are as relevant now as then and its important for this weblog to reflect that.
