National Theatre Live Screening: Frankenstein - Encore

An Encore Broadcast in HD from the National Theatre in London. 

Frankenstein returns to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s most famous novel.

written by Nick Dear
based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Oscar winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs this sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game) as The Creature and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS’s Elementary) as Dr. Frankenstein. 

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.

Suitable for ages 15 and over.

"A monster hit." (Time Out)

Next up on the NTL Series: King Lear
