About Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
Half a century after premiering on The Old Vic, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard's name overnight, returns to that stage in its 50th anniversary celebratory production.
Directed by David Leveaux and starring Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire, it's set against the backdrop of Shakespeare's Hamlet. This mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (McGuire), take centre stage. Increasingly out of their depth, the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of this iconic drama. In a literary hall of mirrors, Stoppard’s brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth allows us to witness the ultimate identity crisis.
