by William Shakespeare

A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
415 Geary Street, San Francisco


Running Time: TBC

John Douglas Thompson is “our greatest classical actor”
The New Yorker


Tony Award–nominee John Douglas Thompson (2017 Broadway: Jitney: A.C.T.: Satchmo at the Waldorf) heads a stellar cast of A.C.T. favorites in Shakespeare’s ghostly tale of revenge, palace intrigue, and madness.

Shattered by the mysterious death of his father, the King, and shamed by the unnatural acts of his mother, Hamlet’s despair has left him a devastated Prince. When visited by the ghost of his father, who tells of the treasonous acts by Hamlet’s uncle, Hamlet vows to avenge the death that has brought a cloud of darkness over the castle.

A classic tale of a family haunted by grief, power, and despair, Hamlet marks A.C.T.’s first production of Shakespeare in two decades, and a thrilling start to the 2017–18 season.
