And then everyone will book to see it at the NT, and it'll play to empty houses at the RC. That would serve them right, haha.

Yes, I guess the script for Frankenstein was deemed not important enough to delay the whole show!

"If anyone has ever read the book, I think they'll sympathise with me," said the playwright on his difficulty adapting Alexandre Dumas's 1,200-page novel.
"It's a difficult task and first time round I failed on it really. I'm not ashamed to say that."
The production was halted after he handed in the completed first draft last week.
Presumably they knew it was a 1200 page novel when they decided to adapt it!

Not really, it happens all the time - the refreshing bit is that they decided not to inflict it on us. But it will be interesting to see what family show can be ready to replace it at relatively short notice.
