Theatre: ‘Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead’
The first thing we see in Tom Stoppard’s classic 1966 tragicomedy “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead,” performed by the Rhinebeck Theatre Society at the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck, is the title characters tossing coins.
Every toss for the play’s duo comes up heads, 92 times in a row. We are entering a world that is decidedly not random, where the fate of the characters is as predetermined and unalterable as a coin toss that never varies.
