    I saw the play last year for my live theatre essay (AQA Unit 3) question in Drama & Theatre Studies - are you studying it for drama?
    Anyways, I'm guessing you know that the play is based around Hamlet and I'm not really a great swot on the themes of the play, however, looking at my notes there seems to be great emphasis put on the ideas and theory of chance and probability, being lucky or being in the right/wrong place at the right/wrong time.
    There seems to be some scribble about duplicity/superficiality and the ideas of self-gain also.
    The play also starts to completely merge into the action of Hamlet. The end parts where Hamlet appears on the ship as Rosencrantz + Gildernstern is really an indicator of how the principal characters are about to share the same fate as the principle characters of Hamlet, ie. DEATH lol

    Hope I helped! Good Luck! Feel free to message me anytime x
