Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), and Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London and screened at the Bing Crosby Theater.

David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight with its markedly funny preoccupation with the inevitability of death.

Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take center stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly disoriented and hilariously ensnared in the madness that surrounds them as their version of the story unfolds. 

This production, as part of Friends Of the Bing’s Stage to Screen Series will screen at The Bing Theater Sunday June 18 at 2:00 PM. Doors open at 1:00 PM. Tickets for adults are $13 online and $15 at the door. Students are $7 online and $9 at the door. This show is sponsored by Windermere Real Estate and South Perry Yoga.
