Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is about ambiguity: ambiguity in time, place, comprehension, identity. The two characters, brought into being within the puzzling universe of the play, by an act of the playwright's creation, and those they encounter, often confuse their names, as they have interchangeable yet periodically unique identities. They are portrayed as two clowns or fools in a world that is beyond their understanding; they cannot identify any reliable feature or the significance in words or events. Their own memories are not reliable or complete and they misunderstand each other as they stumble through philosophical arguments while not realizing the implications to themselves. They often state deep philosophical truths during their nonsensical ramblings, however they depart from these ideas as quickly as they come to them. 'Between "just desserts" and "tragic irony" we are given quite a lot of scope for our particular talent.Generally speaking, things have gone about as far as they can possibly go when things have got about as bad as they reasonably get.'
