The Foundation and the National Theatre present the second screening of Frankenstein in China

Friday, November 16th, 2012

The Foundation are delighted to announce the second screening of the National Theatre’s Frankenstein in China.

Featuring on the 2nd December 2012 at the Shanghai Grand Theatre, this second screening follows Frankenstein’s Chinese debut, earlier in the year in Beijing.  An immediate sell out, the Beijing screenings generated unprecedented press and social media coverage and quickly became the most talked about theatre event on Weibo.

A breakthrough for both China and the Foundation: Through the Foundation’s partnership with the National Theatre, these screenings offer Chinese audiences unparalleled access to the very best from British Theatre.

Featuring as part of this years UK Now Festival, the dynamic collaboration promises to further strengthen cross-cultural collaboration between China and the West, which has been the aim of KT Wong Foundation since it was established in 2007.

Directed by Danny Boyle, and based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel, this new production of Frankenstein was adapted for the stage by Nick Dear and stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.
