This Christmas, don’t look behind you... Christmas Eve 1878. A séance. The ghosts of a young man’s past come back to haunt him on one terrifying night as he’s forced to relive a harrowing tragedy that befell his best friend’s family. The friend’s name: Hamlet.


Following on from their acclaimed ★ ★ ★ ★ sell out production of Much Ado About Nothing in December 2013, ACS Random return to Park90 with a chilling version of Shakespeare’s iconic tale of revenge and murder. The classic tragedy is turned into a terrifying Victorian ghost story, for something a little darker this festive season.


ACS Random

ACS Random was founded in 2002 with a dedication to developing new work from script to production. Before every show we ask three things of everyone who comes to play: that itʼs the best thing they have ever done, they commit to working as an ensemble and above all it has to be fun.

Since our relaunch in 2011, a bit like Marvelʼs Phase 2, we have expanded to Shakespeare, making it accessible to a modern audience while celebrating the brilliance of his writing. Last year ACS Random brought a sell-out production of Much Ado About Nothing to Park90, and weʼll be returning next year with The Trial of Sir Henry Irving (Lately Deceased), coinciding with the 110th anniversary of the great Shakespearean actorʼs death - see overleaf for a few more details.
