Frankenstein – from 5th February until 17th April 2011
Frankenstein's Monster in the 1931 movie version of the book
A new play by Nick Dear and based on the gothic Mary Shelley novel, Frankenstein sees Academy Award winning British director Danny Boyle return to the theatre to direct at the largest auditorium at the National Theatre, the Olivier Theatre, after directing critically acclaimed films Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours.
Frankenstein is the classic and disturbing tale of the creation of a being that is cast out into a cruel world by his horrified maker. Met with judgement and hostility at every turn, Frankenstein becomes determined to track down the man who created him. A play eagerly anticipated by many and only suitable for those aged fifteen and older, Frankenstein will see Atonement star Benedict Cumberbatch and Trainspotting star (and ex-husband to Angelina Jolie!) Jonny Lee Miller alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.
Prices start from £12 with the most expensive tickets going for £45.
