Event description

Description

The School of English at Trinity College Dublin is delighted to present a lecture on "Frankenstein at 200" by Professor Darryl Jones, Professor of English and Deans of Arts, Humanties, and Social Sciences (TCD).

This lecture will be followed by a free screening of the National Theatre Live production of Frankenstein.

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s 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.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Date/time: 1 November 2018 6.00-9.30pm (secreening run time: 140 mins)

Venue: Burke Lecture Theatre, Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin
