David Haig Joins The Cast Of Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead

David Haig joins Daniel Radcliffe in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead At The Old Vic

David Haig will join Joshua McGuire and Daniel Radcliffe in David Leveaux’s production of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at the Old Vic in February. Fifty years after its premiere at the Old Vic, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight returns to the Old Vic stage. 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. David Haig joins the production in the role of The Player. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern runs from 25 February to 29 April 2017. BOOK TICKETS TO ROSENCRANZ AND GUILDENSTERN … Read more
