Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppards name overnight, returns to The Old Vic in its 50th anniversary celebratory production directed by David Leveaux.

Against the backdrop of Shakespeares Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Daniel Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (Joshua McGuire), take centre stage with David Haig as The Player. 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, Stoppards brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.
