- Sun, October 30 9pm: Victor Frankenstein (Benedict Cumberbatch), The Creature (Jonny Lee Miller)
National Theatre Live's thrilling broadcast presentation of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield 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.
'A theatrical coup.'
'A thrill. The most viscerally exciting and stunning show in town.'
'The actors complement each other perfectly.'
'A monster hit.'
‘A memorable production... will doubtless be spoken of for years to come.'
Private group screenings available! (Minimum 75 attendees)
