Henry Irving as Hamlet, Tom Mead as the Ghost, George Neville as Horatio, Frank
Clements as Marcellus in 1874 production by Irving at Lyceum Theatre, Irving's
first Hamlet. At centre on battlements, Hamlet in black with drawn sword appears
to be about to follow Ghost. Hamlet's left arm is extended in front of him in
the direction of the Ghost. The phantom-like Ghost stands at the right, half-turned
back toward Hamlet. At Hamlet's feet, between him and the Ghost, is his cloak.
At the far left, not touching Hamlet, are Marcellus and Horatio, leaning forward
and holding each other as if in fear.
