Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are DeadProgress Theatre presents:
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
by Tom Stoppard
Progress Theatre, The Mount, Christchurch Road, Reading

Tom Stoppard's Broadway and West End hit existential comedy of misidentity set in the wings of Hamlet. Who are Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, where are they, when are they and more importantly are they?

All of these questions and none of them will be tackled during a fast paced play which promises to ask more questions than it answers.

One thing is certain, heads will roll.

Tickets: on 0118 960 6060, online at www.readingarts.co.uk and in person at the Hexagon or Town Hall

Entertaining Angels
by Richard Everett

As a vicar's wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now, after the death of her husband Bardolph, she can enjoy the new-found freedom of being able to do and say exactly what she wants.

But the return of her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations forces Grace to confront the truth of her marriage. Set in a lush vicarage garden, the play is filled with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit.

The play is Directed by Megan Bush and Produced by Judy Winter.
