Saint Xavier High School graduate and Transylvania University first-year Luke Meredith plays the roles of Gertrude and a Poisoner in Transylvania’s production of Tom Stoppard’s brilliant comedy “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.” 

The play opens Nov. 5 in the Lucille C. Little Theater at Transylvania.

The play puts Shakespeare’s two hapless losers from “Hamlet,” at the vortex of an unpredictable universe, in which reality becomes make-believe and theatrical death becomes reality. Adding to the uncertainty is a case of men and women exchanging roles on alternating performances. One night, men will read Shakespeare’s lines while women read Stoppard’s. The following night, the two casts will switch roles.

Meredith is the son of Joseph and Anne Meredith of Crestwood.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 5-6 and 11-14; and 2 p.m. Nov. 7 and 8 in the Lucille C. Little Theater. 

Tickets are $10 and may be reserved by calling the box office at (859) 281-3621. For information call (859) 233-8141.
