The CCP National Theater Live continues its first season with the thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale Frankenstein gracing the Ayala Malls Cinema this February 27, 2024, at 6pm, at Greenbelt 3 Cinema 1. 


CCP NTL Frankenstein

CCP NTL Frankenstein

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 gripping and deeply disturbing classic Gothic tale written by English novelist Mary Shelley. The CCP NTL’s featured play celebrates the 200th anniversary of the 1818 iconic novel.


Captured live on stage in 2011, the production features Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. One of the world’s most acclaimed and popular actors, Cumberbatch is known for his roles as Doctor Strange in the Marvel Universe franchise films, and as Sherlock Holmes. Miller stars in various films such as Elementary, Trainspotting, and Hackers. 


The production was directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle, the director behind Trainspotting, 127 Hours, and 28 Days Later, and the 2009 Academy Awards’ Best Picture Slumdog Millionaire, among others.


CCP NTL Fleabag

CCP NTL Fleabag

Those who missed the Philippine cinema premiere of Fleabag will get a chance to experience the hilarious, award-winning, original one-woman play, also screening on February 27, at 9pm. 


Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose. 

In just 67-minutes, audiences can expect a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.


The hilarious, award-winning play that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, was filmed live on stage in London’s West End in 2019, presented by DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre.


Presented in partnership with the National Theatre Live and the Ayala Malls Cinemas, the CCP NTL program provides an exceptional and accessible “live” performance experience filmed live from the UK’s most exciting stages. Since September 2023, the CCP has been bringing the best of British theater to Filipino audiences. 


Tickets to CCP NTL screenings are priced at Php 250 (regular) and Php 150 (students). Special discounts are given to senior citizens and PWDs. Visit the ticket booth or book your tickets at
