I think it's intresting that Ros and Guil ask so many questions though few to none are actually answered. The game of questions was inresting, funny, and was kind of a reminder to me how frequently they misunderstand or miscommnicate. They sort of stumble through the play and to their deaths. Anyway, I found the game of question scene in the movie:

Haha I loved that. It was great. To me it sounded a lot like the Abbott And Costello skit "Who's On First?"


They are both really funny. I loved how Guildenstern tries to trick Rosencrantz in the beginning, but Rosencrantz comes back to win it in the end. The game truly epitomizes the topic of questions being more important than answers.

It's funny that you posted about questions since the prompt was about questions that go unanswered. I agree with you Sara that there are a lot of unanswered questions between Ros and Guil. I think this forces not only them to contemplate these theories but also the audience.

I think the fact that Ros and Guil's questions go unanswered is suppossed to show that there are a lot of unanswerable questions in our reality. I think the emphasis on death and the difference between theatrical death and actual death is ment to make us ponder the true nature of life and death.

I agree with Aly. The whole play is full of actions and questions that you expect answers or responses for, but nothing happens of what's expected. Especially their deaths
