The play's cast features two Oscar nominees: Benedict Cumberbatch and Naomie Harris.
I should be Adam. God was proud of Adam. But Satan's the one I sympathise with. For I was cast out, like Satan, though I did no wrong. And when I see others content, I feel the bile rise in my throat, and it tastes like Satan's bile!
Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternated playing the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the creature on stage, so a performance of each version was filmed. When the play was screened in cinemas, screenings alternated between versions. When the play was made available on YouTube via National Theatre At Home in 2020, the performance with Benedict Cumberbatch as the creature was released on April 30th, followed by the performance with Jonny Lee Miller as the creature on May 1st.
