Frank and Percy with Ian McKellen and Roger Allam extends run in London

Frank and Percy with Ian McKellen and Roger Allam has extended its run in London

Having transferred from Theatre Royal Windsor, Ben Weatherill’s piece is now booking to 17 December 2023. You can book tickets now here.

Ian McKellen stars as Percey and Roger Allam as Frank in the production, directed by Sean Mathias and produced by Bill Kenwright.

Frank and Percy is a poignant and witty take on the unexpected relationship that blossoms between two men. Devoted to their canine companions, they believe that human connection is far more temperamental, but, as their dogs play in the park, can Frank, a widowed schoolteacher, and Percy, a somewhat radical elder statesman, find the time for new love, or should they just let sleeping dogs lie?

Frank and Percy is designed by Morgan Large, with lighting design by Nick Richings and sound design by Andy Graham.

The Other Palace owner and producer, Bill Kenwright said: “I am delighted that we are able to offer more theatre lovers the opportunity to enjoy Ben Weatherill’s new play by extending our record-breaking run at The Other Palace by two weeks only. The play reunites two of the greatest actors of a generation in an intimate setting, beautifully directed by Sean Mathias.”
