An encore presentation of Danny Boyle's smash-hit production of Frankenstein, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the creature and Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein. Fathom Events, BY Experience and National Theatre Live invite you to the special encore of Frankenstein, captured from the National Theatre in 2011, in an extraordinary one-night cinema event on Tuesday, October 25. Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, Steve Jobs), this thrilling production features Jonny Lee Miller (CBS's Elementary, Trainspotting) and Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC's Sherlock, The Imitation Game) as Victor Frankenstein and his creation, respectively. The production 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. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
