Daniel Radcliffe stars in the 50 anniversary celebratory production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.
Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, Radcliffe (Rosencrantz) is joined in this mind-bending situational comedy by stage, film and screen star Joshua McGuire (Guildenstern).
The hapless duo take centre stage as minor roles in a production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. But they quickly find themselves out of their depth, stumbling their way through the action of the iconic drama.
Painting a literary hallway of mirrors, this is Tom Stoppard at his brilliantly funny, existential finest, as the characters find themselves locked in the ultimate identity crisis.
