LONDON — Daniel Radcliffe is returning to the London stage in a Samuel Beckett double bill.

The Old Vic Theatre says the former “Harry Potter” star will appear alongside Alan Cumming in a production of Beckett’s bleak comedy “Endgame” that opens in February. It will be performed along with Beckett’s rarely produced short play “Rough For Theatre II.”

The 29-year-old Radcliffe appeared at the Old Vic in 2017 in Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.”

The Old Vic’s 2019-2020 season will also reunite Claire Foy and Matt Smith, stars of the first two seasons of “The Crown,” as a couple grappling with the fate of the planet in “Lungs.”

The theater also plans to stage Lucy Prebble’s “A Very Expensive Poison,” based on the killing of former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
