National Theatre Live: Frankenstein (2011)

Directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein, Jonny Lee Miller and Ralph Fiennes. Captured live on stage in 2011, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation. 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.
