National Theatre Live: Frankenstein
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Cinema screening of live performance.Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Met 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. Directed by Danny Boyle, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein and Jonny Lee Miller as his creation.
