Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, set against the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, is a mind-bending situation comedy. It follows two minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, as they stumble their way in and out of the action.
Tom Stoppard’s iconic drama sees the pair engage in an ongoing philosophical debate about free will versus predestination, each trying to prove absurd positions through misbegotten experiments. Half a century after its premiere on the Old Vic stage, Maidenhead Drama Guild present a modern, fully immersive version in the round.
WHY? This production is full of slapstick comedy, physical theatre and Stoppard’s wonderful wry humour
This amateur production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.

This Norwich based folk/Americana trio weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies.
Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and selfpenned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home.

Award winning comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a brand new show demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.
George’s family have banished him to the shed. But he simply has to keep cooking and his unstoppable urge to be creative means inventive solutions and some seriously tasty food. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be abused and re-purposed!
