Inside Hamlet has two predecessors. In 2000 The Swedish touring national theatre Riksteatern brought an early example of immersive theatre, Hamlet inifrån, on the road. Based on Martin Elricsson original interactive adaptation produced by Anders Wendin for Riksteatern and the director's cut produced by Christopher Sandberg for Interaktiva Uppsättningar.

In 2002 that piece was expanded and redesigned into a groundbreaking three-day larp, which you can read about here (p. 67) and here (p. 130).

In 2015 these audiences were finally brought together in a truly participatory theatrical larp experience. The play was thoroughly redesigned and all characters re-written to reflect contemporary larp design practice.
