dc.description.abstract This thesis provides an in-depth analysis of Tom Stoppard’s play, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, followed by a detailed description of Martin Holden’s directorial approach to the work in Baylor University’s production, which ran from November 14 to November 19, 2006. Chapter one will provide a short biography of the playwright, an overview of Stoppard’s work in the theatre, reoccurring themes within his plays, and a production history of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Chapter two will focus on the analysis of the play, emphasizing on its style, dramatic action, and ideas. Chapter three addresses the collaboration process between the director and designers of the production. Chapter four traces the production’s journey at Baylor University, from the auditioning and casting of the actors, the play’s rehearsal process, to the actual performance. Chapter five provides a critical self-evaluation of the director’s work with the play. en
