Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.
Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs a sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS’s Elementary) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and 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 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.
Thursday night’s performance will feature Benedict Cumberbatch as the creature, and Jonny Lee Miller in the role of Victor Frankenstein. They will switch roles at our Friday afternoon screening at 4 pm. And Sunday’s 4 pm performance will have Benedict Cumberbatch as the creature, and Jonny Lee Miller in the role of Victor Frankenstein again.
“A thrill. The most viscerally exciting and stunning show in town.”
