By Tom Stoppard 

Directed by David Leveaux 

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and David Haig 

Previews from Saturday 25 February 2017

The Old Vic has announced that David Haig will join Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire in Rosencrantz & 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.

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.

Joining Daniel Radcliffe (Rosencrantz), Joshua McGuire (Guildenstern) and David Haig (The Player) are Louisa Beadel (Player), William Chubb (Polonius), Luke Mullins (Hamlet), Marianne Oldham (Gertrude) and Helena Wilson (Ophelia).

Further casting still to be announced.
