Bill Kenwright presents the National Premiere of Ben Weatherill’s, Frank and Percy directed by Sean Mathias. This highly anticipated production sees one of our greatest stage and screen actors Sir Ian McKellen co-star as Percy alongside three-time Olivier Award winner Roger Allam as Frank.

Frank and Percy is a poignant and witty take on the unexpected relationship that blossoms between two men.

Ever seen a couple of old boys on a park bench and wondered what they are chatting about? In his new play Ben Weatherill lets us overhear Frank and Percy as they discuss the weather, then their dogs and then each other and so much more. Will the widowed schoolteacher and the elder statesman dare to risk changing their lives or let sleeping dogs lie?

Old friends, three-time Olivier Award winner Roger Allam, and one of our greatest stage and screen actors, Ian McKellen, re-unite with Director Sean Mathias, for this witty, poignant two-hander.
