National Theatre Live: Frankenstein (Encore)
About NT Live: Frankenstein
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.
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle ("Trainspotting", "Slumdog Millionaire"), "Frankenstein" features Benedict Cumberbatch ("Hamlet", BBC’s "Sherlock") and Jonny Lee Miller ("Elementary", "Trainspotting") alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
