  1. I’m so excited to watch the programme – I went to see the NT’s showing of Othello yesterday in the Cinema, and it was amazing. I only hope that Frankenstein is still around to be watched!

    • I believe that Frankenstein is being re shown in certain cinemas sometime in November. I hope you enjoy the programme, it is fantastic. Excellent representation of 50 years of iconic thearte.
