Further casting announced for Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

Published 16 January 2017

Further casting is today announced for Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead which previews from Saturday 25 February with a press night on Tuesday 7 March, starring Daniel Radcliffe, David Haig and Joshua McGuire.

Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight, returns to The Old Vic in its 50th anniversary celebratory production.

Against the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Daniel Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (Joshua 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 sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.

The further cast includes Hermeilio Miguel Aquino as Courtier, Louisa Beadel as a Player, William Chubb as Polonius, Josie Dunn as a Player, Matthew Durkan as a Player, Wil Johnson as Claudius, Luke Mullins as Hamlet, Theo Ogundipe as Horatio, Marianne Oldham as Gertrude, Evlyne Oyedokun as a Player, Alex Sawyer as a Player, Helena Wilson as Ophelia and Tim van Eyken as Laertes/ Player.
