Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning farce turns Shakespeare's Hamlet inside out. Two clowns wake up one morning only to discover that they are minor characters in the greatest tragedy ever written. As the story of Hamlet plays out all around them, they struggle to figure out what is happening, what it all means and whether they can escape their ultimate fate.
