National Theatre Live- Frankenstein
National Theatre Live’s much-loved broadcast returns to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s novel. Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, 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. Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale. Captured live on stage in 2011, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. 100 minutes without an intermission.
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller as the Doctor (Elementary, Trainspotting).
