Frances de la Tour played Hamlet at Half Moon Theatre when it moved from Alie Street to the Mile End Road. It was a promenade production which took part in a ‘rough’ building, with set and costume design that echoed the decay happening in the play. She talks about her gender not making a difference to playing the role, with the exception of one performance when she had to stop the play.
Frances de la Tour talks about the innovation of the fringe company which she believes influenced other venues, such as the Donmar Warehouse and Kings Head Theatre. Interviewed by Khalilah Lubega.
