Frankenstein
by Nick Dear, based
on the novel by Mary Shelley
2pm screening: Jonny Lee Miller as Creature & Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein
7pm screening: Benedict Cumberbatch as Creature & Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein

Directed by
Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict
Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of 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 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.

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