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," a new play by Nick Dear based on Mary Shelley's novel, directed by Danny Boyle, starring 2012 "Best Actor" Olivier Award joint winners Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, alternates the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.
