PETERBOROUGH — The Peterborough Players will screen the National Theatre’s production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard on Saturday, January 20 at 1 p.m.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral) star in this brilliantly funny situation comedy brought to you in high definition 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 center 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.

Runtime is approximately 2 hours and 33 minutes with an intermission.

Single tickets to NATIONAL THEATRE screenings are $20. For tickets and information on this and all upcoming productions, call 603-924-7585 and visit

The Peterborough Players is located at 55 Hadley Road in Peterborough, NH.
