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 centre stage.
