Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead Old Vic tickets will be on pre-sale on Monday 31st October 2016. General tickets are on sale from 2nd November 2016.
The 50th-anniversary production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard will open on 7th March, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire. The previously announced new version of Woyzeck by Jack Thorne, starring John Boyega, in May will be followed by Girl From the North Country written and directed by Conor McPherson with the songs of Bob Dylan in July. Later in 2017 the Olivier-nominated Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax returns by popular demand. The Old Vic is also pleased to announce an exciting additional programme which includes Lates at The Old Vic, One Voice, a series of new-writing monologues, a range of family activities and performances, as well as the on-going Voices Off series of talks, discussions and debates.
Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight, returns to The Old Vic in its 50th anniversary celebratory production.
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.
