CLARK ART INSTITUTE PRESENTS LIVE BROADCAST OF ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD FROM LONDON NATIONAL THEATRE

May 2, 2017

Williamstown, Massachusetts—The Clark Art Institute presents a live broadcast of London National Theatre’s Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead on Saturday, May 20 at 1 pm in the auditorium. Tickets are $18 ($16 Clark members) and may be purchased online at clarkart.edu or by calling 413 458 0524. Run time is 3 hours, 20 minutes.
 
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 playwright Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the fiftieth anniversary of the play that made Stoppard an overnight sensation.
 
Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take center stage. As the young double act stumbles 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.
