He will be swapping wands and wizarding for Shakespeare and Stoppard as we can exclusively reveal a live screening for the latest work by Daniel Radcliffe.

The Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre will screen Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead with the Harry Potter star.

It will be shown live from the Old Vic Theatre in London on Thursday, April 20, starting at 7pm.

As well as starring in all seven of the Harry Potter films, Daniel also took the lead role in the horror film The Woman in Black.

He is no stranger to the world of the stage having appeared in Peter Shaffer’s play Equus and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway.

Radcliffe will play Rosencrantz while The Hour’s Joshua McGuire will play Guildenstern.

In addition to the duo, the actor David Haig is to appear in the show.

He is best known for his roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral, the TV drama Witness for the Prosecution as well as the sitcom The Thin Blue Line.

The piece is one of the most famous by playwright Tom Stoppard and is a situation comedy.

The new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

It expands upon the exploits of two hapless minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, and puts them 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.
