What was once a well-suited lifestyle of grandeur couldn’t possibly still be such a palace of wonder and enchantment when it has all but crumbled around itself into a derelict and repulsive hovel of squalor and rotting pathos.

Directed by Ryan Haase, this evocative play on words begs the question of where do we— as individuals,
An audience knows what to expect and that is all they are prepared to believe in. Such a premise as this is where the initial notion of “suspending one’s disbelief” came from, and thus theatrical extemporanea, et. al and so forth. When playwright Tom Stoppard dared the audience to believe in his tertiary character-exploration of Hamlet, he had no idea that Stillpointe Theatre would be putting their hands all over Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead in only a way that this innovative,
