This is not what I think of when I hear over-raught. I guess I think of overwrought – which would mean something quite different from overtake, which is what I think Rosencrantz means here. And I suppose they “over-raught” the players because the players were laden down with props and costumes and things.
In the film of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, they have a cart that turned into a stage (a cart which I envied, by the way.) I may be conflating the Tom Stoppard play with a film clip of Ariana Mnoushkin’s Moliere because I envied their stage carts as well. And while one of those carts would likely slow you down on the road, I do fantasize about having one. About Just chucking it all and hitting the road with a stage-cart and a jolly brand of colleagues. Never pay rent again just sleep on the stage. Snore happily while people like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern hurry past.
