HARRY Potter star Daniel Radcliffe heads the cast of the National Theatre Live production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead which will be broadcast live at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Thursday April 20 at 7pm.

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.

Launched in 2009, National Theatre Live broadcasts have been seen by an audience of more than 6.5 million people at 2500 venues in 60 countries.

Tickets for the performance at Theatr Mwldan are priced at £12.50 (£11.50 concessions).
