Minor figures in Shakespeare's Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are often bumbling and sometimes insightful messengers in Tom Stoppard's absurdist play. With the plotting and high death toll of the classic happening just offstage, the two try to make sense of their plight. The show is a joint production by Theatre 13 and Theatre UNO. Tickets $12 general admission, $8 UNO students/faculty/staff.
