Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returned to the theatre with the visionary production “Frankenstein” – a new play by Nick Dear based on the novel by Mary Shelley. 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. “Frankenstein” enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch alternated the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. The two satellite broadcasts will offer the chance to see both of these versions.
