NT Live Broadcast – Frankenstein

October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| $15.00

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting). For this performance, Cumberbatch will play the role of Victor Frankenstein and Miller will play the role of his creation.

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.

Frankenstein is a stage adaptation by Nick Dear of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.
