NTL Encore Presentation. Directed by Academy-Award® winner Danny Boyle, this thrilling encore production features Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation. Frankenstein was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by over half a million people in cinemas around the world. 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 October 30 screening will feature Cumberbatch as the Creature and Miller as Victor Frankenstein.
