Frankenstein - Benedict Cumberbatch as The Creature – National Theatre Live ENCORE
Oscar® winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire) returned to the theatre to direct this visionary production in 2011, Frankenstein by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley. Back by popular demand! Throughout the run of Frankenstein at the National Theatre, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternated the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.. 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. Warning: Contains themes of an adult and sexual nature and nudity.
