Synopsis

NT Live: Encore


ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD (12A)

By Tom Stoppard


Director: David Leveaux

With: Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and David Haig.

Running time: approx 180 mins.(no interval)

Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and David Haig star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny modern classic, originally broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London on April 20. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.


Against the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, 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. It's a literary hall of mirrors, a brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth that leads to the ultimate identity crisis.


Please Note: No Interval
