Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead is a comedy that explains the connection between Hamlet, the Holy Grail, and some very sexy vampires. Julian Marsh is an out of work and unsuspecting ladies man who still lives in the apartment above his Dad's medical office. Frustrated by his son's lack of a career, the good doctor cuts a deal with one of his creepy patients and gets Julian a job directing an off-Broadway play. The play is a bizarre adaptation of Hamlet written by a pale Romanian man named Horatio who is actually a master vampire. Julian recruits some New York actor buddies and a longtime ex-girlfriend to star in the show and they find themselves smack dab in the middle of a two thousand year old conspiracy.
