When the area was scoped out more closely indeed there were many people there; they were just all squashed back towards the playground under the shade of the trees. On this warm, humid day under continued threats of “flash floods”, people were just there to enjoy the rousing mellow sounds of a Celtic band.

The Knightsbridge Theatre will stage Tom Stoppard's Tony-Award Winning Comedy "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead." Tom Stoppard turns William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" topsy-turvy in this witty, existential puzzle-box that features Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, a pair of minor characters in the Bard's play. Beckoned to find the cause of the Danish prince's malaise, the duo strolls into the midst of the royal intrigue. One part absurdism and one part slapstick, this immensely popular modern classic will open at the Knightsbridge Theatre on April 29. Tiger Reel directed this production.
