Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
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, Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.
