Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead returns to The Old Vic Theatre starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, Rosencrantz and 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.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Privacy) and Joshua McGuire (Future Conditional, Posh), and directed by David Leveaux.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern will run from 25 February 2017 until 29 April 2017 at The Old Vic Theatre.


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 cast features Daniel Radcliffe (Rosencrantz), Joshua McGuire (Guildenstern), David Haig (The Player), Hermeilio Miguel Aquino (Courtier), Louisa Beadel (Player), William Chubb (Polonius), Josie Dunn (Player), Matthew Durkan (Player), Wil Johnson (Claudius), Luke Mullins (Hamlet), Theo Ogundipe (Horatio), Marianne Oldham (Gertrude), Evlyne Oyedokun (Player), Alex Sawyer (Player), Helena Wilson (Ophelia) and Tim van Eyken (Laertes/Player).


Playwright: Tom Stoppard.

Directed by David Leveaux, composed by Corin Buckeridge with design by Anna Fleischle, lighting by Howard Harrison and sound by Fergus O’Hare.
