National Theatre Live Presents: Frankenstein
By Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley
Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (‘Trainspotting’, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’), FRANKENSTEIN features Benedict Cumberbatch (‘Doctor Strange’, ‘Hamlet’, ‘Sherlock’) and Jonny Lee Miller (‘Elementary’, ‘Trainspotting’) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Dr. Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Filmed live on-stage in 2011, this thrilling National Theatre production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.
