The Loft Theatre presents Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Tom Stoppard's existential comedy that follows two minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet to their bitter end. In this episode we interview members of the cast and crew, discussing the intricacies of the play's plot, the demands of physical comedy and the importance of aerial acrobatics.

We also introduce our audio footnote technology, providing background information on Shakespeare's Hamlet and other important facts within the context of the podcast.
