What’s on in London: Frank and Percy
After runs in both Windsor and Bath, Ben Weatherill’s play – Frank and Percy – transfers to London and will run at The Other Palace from 8 September until 3 December.
Directed by Sean Mathias and starring Ian McKellen and Roger Allam, Frank and Percy explores an 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 explores the fragility and joy of relationships, and what forges and strengthens bonds between humans, at a time when more than ever, we all need to love and support one another…” explains Sean Mathias.
