“Fizzes with life…the casting is clever.” — Susannah Clapp, Observer

“Leveaux’s cast serve the high-brow antics and music-hall larks, the nods to Beckett and hints of Beyond the Fringe brilliantly.” — Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph

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 out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds. 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, marking the 50th anniversary of the work that made the young playwright a name overnight.
