NT Live: Frankenstein (Encore)


As of Friday, October 28th, masks are encouraged and appreciated, but not mandatory for this event.

Captured live on stage for film in 2011. This thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

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 Victor Frankenstein (Elementary, Trainspotting).

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.

Run time: 123 minutes

No intermission.
