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.
