National Theatre Live: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

A FILM BY: David Leveaux
WRITTEN BY: Tom Stoppard
STARRING: Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire, David Haig

Daniel Radcliffe (HARRY POTTER, THE WOMAN IN BLACK), Joshua McGuire (THE HOUR) and David Haig (FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.

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 HAMLET, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage.  As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds. 

"Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire are a delightful double act." --Daily Telegraph

"Tom Stoppard's comedy shines brightly." --Guardian
