Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead

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.~

Directed by David Leveaux
Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire

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.

    With sharp humour and spectacular timing the actors outdone themselves. From the theatrics to the frivolity the show was outstanding. A must see!

    Excellent production. Great minimalist staging. Staccato paced exchanges, beautifully timed - all mirroring Shakespeare. Much comedy and moments of genuine pathos. Joshua Maguire stands out.
