Kentucky Shakespeare’s Producing Artistic Director Matt Wallace returns to the stage with company veterans Brian Hinds and Gregory Maupin in the title roles of Tom Stoppard’s modern dramatic masterpiece. This fabulously inventive comedy is told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Hamlet. Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

Presenting sponsor – the Jennifer Lawrence Arts Fund at the Fund for the Arts.

“Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air.” – NY Times

The month of Halloween, we present Shakespeare’s bloodiest thriller, 
a gripping tale of horror in an empty warehouse in Butchertown. Violent and experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakespeare’s early career and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere. Join us for this unique experience and sordid tale of revenge and political turmoil. Rated “R” – for ages 17+.
