Pre Performance Tour (Odeon: Cardiff Bay)
I went to my first National Theatre Live screening last night.
Had wanted to attend one for ages!
A friend and I saw the classic Rosencrantz and Guidenstern Are Dead. The last time I saw it was many years ago – a couple of friends acting in a sixth form production.
Yesterday’s screening was excellent. Tight comic timing from Josh McGuire and Daniel Radcliffe as Guildenstern and Rosencrantz and David Haig embodied The Player superbly:
“We’re actors – we’re the opposite of people!”
Poetic lines and clever wordplay propelled the play to Shakespeare’s Hamlet’s tragic end. Always reminding us of the fragility of our lives on earth.
