National Theatre Live encore!

Written by Nick Dear and directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (TRAINSPOTTING, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE), this thrilling production features Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC's 'Sherlock,' THE IMITATION GAME) and Jonny Lee Miller (CBS's 'Elementary,' TRAINSPOTTING) 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. DCP digital.
