NATIONAL Theatre Live presents Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.
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.
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.
The live screening will be on April 20, at 6.45pm, at The Arts Centre, Edge Hill University.

Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.
Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.
The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence.
Following his sell-out productions of Tom MortonSmith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action.
Julius Caeser will be shown at The Arts Centre, Edge Hill University, on April 26, at 6.45pm.
