Fine first edition - some light foxing to top of page block, and several light blotches to first flyleaf. In a near-fine unclipped dust jacket with some wear to corners and minor chipping to top of spine. Some discoloration to white back of jacket.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play which, as it were, takes place in the wings of Hamlet, and finds both humour and poignancy in the situation of the ill-fated attendant lords.
The National Theatre production in April 1967 made Tom Stoppard's reputation virtually overnight. Its wit, stagecraft and verbal verve remain as exhilarating as they were then and the play has become a contemporary classic.
