DESCRIPTION:

Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny play stars Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire.

Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage,  the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight, returns to The Old Vic in this 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 play is directed  by David Leveaux.

presented by NATIONAL THEATRE (ENCORE)
