When you think of the work of Tom Stoppard you might think of Arcadia or even the film Shakespeare In Love, but come February 2017 the Old Vic Theatre returns to his upside-down look at Hamlet with Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead.

But even if the name Tom Stoppard isn’t enough to entice you to the Old Vic Theatre in the early part of 2017, then surely the presence of both Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire will be enough. Both performers take on the eponymous roles and ensure that the Old Vic Theatre maintains its place at the top of British theatre credentials.

With Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, Stoppard turns Hamlet upside down by focusing on minor characters from Shakespeare’s influential play. Whilst Prince Hamlet is avenging his father’s death we focus on the two courtiers of the title who must find their own way through the action despite not having the skills to cope. Described as simultaneous comedy, tragedy and existential crisis, the show has earned many admirers over the years and also features brief appearances of characters from Shakespeare’s text, making it an intriguing an memorable piece of work.

With that in mind it is a show that always gets plenty of attention whenever it is staged around the world and this time around it has extra pulling-power in the form of Daniel Radcliffe, whose work as Harry Potter will forever make him a familiar face to an international audience.

But in addition to portraying the boy wizard in numerous blockbuster films, Radcliffe has also made his presence known on the stage and has previously appeared in the capital in the likes of The Play What I Wrote at the Wyndham’s Theatre, Equus at the Gielgud Theatre (and on Broadway) and The Cripple Of Inishmaan at the Noël Coward Theatre.

So come 2017 the attention of audiences is surely going to be on the Old Vic Theatre as David Leveaux directs Daniel Radcliffe and others in Tom Stoppard’s classic play. Whether you are a fan of Stoppard’s previous hits or are new to his work this will surely provide a memorable evening at the theatre.

Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead plays at the Old Vic Theatre from Saturday 25th February 2017.
