Frankie Howerd wasone of Britain's most loved comedians for half a century. But he had a secret.And the secret's name was Dennis.
This brand new playby Mark Farrelly (Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope) takes you to the heart ofFrankie and Dennis' clandestine relationship, which lasted from the 1950s untilFrankie's death in 1992. It also affords a glorious opportunity to encounterFrankie in full-flight stand up mode.
Packed withlaughter, but unafraid of truth, Howerd's End portrays two humans'journey through closeness, love, grief, and all the other things that make lifeworth living. Come and say farewell to a legend...and learn the art of lettinggo.
