London’s National Theatre is going to be providing free weeklong streams of Danny Boyle’s 2011 production of Frankenstein as part of their National Theatre at Home.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), this production of Frankenstein sees Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Hamlet, Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

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.

The play is written by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley.

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.
