Hamlet opened at Mile End Road as a promenade production in 1979 starring Frances de la Tour as a female Hamlet. It was a highly experimental staging using a trimmed version of the original text.

The production took place before the conversion of the Mile End Road theatre site and theatrically ‘christened’ the building.
