Award-winning psychological thriller comes to the Union

Preview by Paul Nelson

PERFECT Ambiguity is to present the award-winning new play, Random Acts of Malice, at the Union Theatre in Southwark. The play, winner of the Derek Lomas Best New Play Award, was written by Alan Fraser. It will be the London premiere of the play, which is also shortlisted for the Verity Bargate New Writing Award.

Late one evening, a stranger arrives at the remote Scottish home of The Reverend James Petrie, and the Reverend's life and his faith, are transformed forever. This tense, emotional, psychological thriller will have you gripping your seat and questioning all you have taken for granted.

Directed by Steve Harper, who is also co-founder of Together Alone Theatre Company and co-director of The Union Theatre's new writing shows Tube and Camp, this new play continues Perfect Ambiguity's championing of new writing and exploration of issues surrounding violence.

The cast includes Richard Owens (Rebel Heart, Batchelor's Walk, Inspector Morse), Cara Chase, (Mountain Language, Tube) and Hazel Lucas (Camp, Two Up), and the show is designed by Julie Marabelle (The Life Of Galileo - BAC, The Little Black Book - Riverside Studios).
