Filmed live on 2011 from the stage of the National Theatre in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by more than 800,000 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 increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
This filmed performance is recommended for ages 12 and up. This recording has been adjusted for YouTube.
You can watch both versions of Frankenstein on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel:
Benedict Cumberbatch performing as the creature from 30 April at 7pm, to 7 May at 7pm.
Jonny Lee Miller performing as the creature from 1 May at 7pm, to 8 May at 7pm.
We can't go out so we're not spending money on things like coffee and cakes, glass of wine or beer, and generally eating out and socialising.
Why not pop the money you’ve saved on some of these things into a jar and put it towards the Raise the Roof appeal. If we ask friends and family to do the same we could raise a reasonable amount of money for the appeal.
Even if we only put a couple of pounds a week away it would all add up. What do you think - shall we give it a go? It would be great if once our wonderful theatre can reopen we have lots of jars of money to hand over!
