Following his appearance at The Viaduct Theatre in Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope in October 2022, Mark Farrelly presents his much-acclaimed two-handed play exploring the life of a comedy genius. Frankie Howerd was one of Britain’s most loved comedians for half a century. But he had a secret. And the secret’s name was Dennis.
Howerd’s End takes you to the heart of Frankie and Dennis’ clandestine relationship, which lasted from the 1950s until Frankie’s death in 1992. It also affords a glorious opportunity to encounter Frankie in full flight stand-up mode.
Packed with laughter, but unafraid of truth, Howerd’s End portrays two humans’ journey through closeness, love, grief, and all the other things that make life worth living. Come and say farewell to a legend…and learn the art of letting go.
