Mark Farrelly's play explores the relationship which started in the 195os and lasted 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.

Frankie Howerd is played by Simon Cartwright, and Dennis Heymer by Mark Farrelly.
