Tom Stoppard
Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead
1967

Thirty years before he helped pen the screenplay for Shakespeare in Love, Tom Stoppard wrote Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. It re-imagines Hamlet through the eyes of two minor characters who, despite a hilarious examination of destiny and free will, cannot escape their titular fate. Guildenstern sums up their dilemma, and perhaps our own, when he cries, "But for God's sake what are we supposed to do?!"
