Description

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (TrainspottingSlumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A SlaveStar Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (TrainspottingMansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation. The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. 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 friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays the creature on Friday & Sunday while Jonny Lee Miller plays the creature on Saturday.
