Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard. Directed by Cate Clelland. Canberra Rep. Canberra REP Theatre, Acton. Feb 17- March 5. Bookings www.canberrarep.org.au or 62571950.

What a relief to see Canberra Rep's COVID-delayed Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead finally make it to performance. Tom Stoppard's take on two minor characters from the play Hamlet and their attempts to understand what is going on (in Hamlet and the universe in general) has been a delight for more than 50 years. Cate Clelland's production continues that delight.
