Enjoy a free screening from National Theatre at Home, of the dramatic classic Frankenstein.
Filmed live from the stage of the National Theatre in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by more than 800,000 people in cinemas around the world.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), this production of Frankenstein 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.
As part of National Theatre at Home, you can watch both versions of Frankenstein on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel; Benedict Cumberbatch performing as the Creature from April 30 and Jonny Lee Miller performing as the Creature from May 1.
Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes.
