OUT OF OFFICE

ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
The playwright Tom Stoppard made his name 40 years ago with this absurdist retelling of Hamlet from the point of view of his hapless student friends, here revived under the direction of Tom Stoppard. Samuel Barnett – known for his role as one of the classmates in the History Boys – and Jamie Parker star as the confused young Danes, all at sea as the weird events at Elsinor play out around them. Until 20 Aug, Theatre Royal Haymarket, SW1Y 4HT. Tickets £17-£18. www.trh.co.uk

MASTERPIECE FAIR
Last year’s debut fair, a celebration of art, antiques and all kinds of beautiful things, caused quite a splash. This year’s fair will sparkle too, with highlights including fine watches from Switzerland’s oldest still-running brand, Vacheron Constantin (pictured) and a two-seater Spitfire fighter plane. 30 June-5 July, Royal Hospital Chelsea, SW3. www.masterpiecefair.com
