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.
