National Theatre Live: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead
Thursday, September 21 at 7PM
Ethel M. Barber Theater
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston
By Tom Stoppard
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire, David Haig
Directed by David Leveaux
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.
David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take center stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.
Running time: 3hrs and 20 mins
Rating: Suitable for 12 years and above
