Full casting has been announced for the Old Vic’s 50th anniversary production of Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead.
Daniel Radcliffe (Rosencrantz), Joshua McGuire (Guildenstern) and David Haig (The Player) will lead the cast of Tom Stoppard’s classic play which runs from 25 February 2017 until 29 April 2017 at the Old Vic theatre.
The cast will also feature 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).
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.
