National Theatre Live: Frankenstein
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Cinema screening of live performance.Directed by Danny Boyle, with Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein and Benedict Cumberbatch 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 friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011 and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people.
