Frankenstein (2020 Encore)
by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) as Victor Frankenstein and Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) as 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 one million people in cinemas around the world.
Run Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
