Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead
Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire, and David Haig star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.
The play expands upon the exploits of two minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet, the courtiers Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The action of Stoppard's play takes place mainly “in the wings” of Shakespeare's, with brief appearances of major characters from Hamlet who enact fragments of the original scenes. Between these episodes the two protagonists voice their confusion at the progress of events occurring onstage without them in Hamlet, of which they have no direct knowledge.
