The National Theatre’s acclaimed 2011 production of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN is free to watch from 7pm on Thursday 30th April until 7pm on Friday 8th May.
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), this production sees Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Hamlet, Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of 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 increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
This filmed performance is recommended for ages 12 and up. This recording has been “adjusted for YouTube” – whatever that may mean!
Although this production is free to watch, please strongly consider making a donation to the National Theatre – or text NTATHOME 10 to 70085 to donate £10 – to enable it to keep its doors open after this crisis has passed.
