Frank and Percy in London


Ian McKellen, Roger Allam

Frank and Percy Tickets

Take two legendary British actors. Stir in lots of comedy. Add a handful of poignancy. What do you get? Frank and Percy is a deliciously amusing and touching play exploring the unexpected relationship that develops between two very different men; a widowed schoolteacher and an elder statesman.

Frank and Percy tickets – A dazzling new comedy

Experience two brilliant acting legends on stage as Ian McKellen and Roger Allam meander through a play exploring the fragility and joy of human relationships and the things that create and strengthen the bonds connecting us.

This fresh new comedy hits The Other Palace Theatre in Autumn 2023, a production packed with wit and fun, and a two-hander to remember. The play’s premiere proved a smash hit at the Theatre Royal Windsor during the summer, then it transferred to Bath. Now two of the nation’s best-loved National Treasures are taking the play to the West End for a strictly limited season.

See Roger Allam and Ian McKellen in Frank and Percy

Roger Allam and Ian McKellen make a splendid creative partnership as they reveal their blossoming relationship, a friendship rich in warmth and wit. No wonder they’re billed as a couple of our best-loved and acclaimed acting talents.

Roger Allam has won three Oliviers and lit up the stage in the original West End production of Les Misérables, and delighted TV audiences with roles in TV shows as different as the political farce The Thick Of It, the detective series Endeavour and the world-class Game of Thrones. Ian McKellen has also starred on stage and screen, with his Academy Award-nominated role of Gandalf in the movie The Lord of the Rings and a number of cracking Shakespeare plays under his belt.

All about Frank and Percy – Top quality eavesdropping

If you’ve ever seen a couple of old blokes sitting on a park bench chatting, you’ll find Frank and Percy pretty familiar. The play eavesdrops on their chats about the weather, their beloved dogs, each other, and ultimately a lot more than you might expect. The resulting relationship is warm and heartfelt, but will it lead to more than friendship?

The Evening Standard says Frank and Percy has both ‘bark and bite’, which bodes well for a plot revealing the lovely magic we find in the least expected places. The result is charming, enthralling, and very funny.

Who is on the Frank and Percy Creative Team?

The original creative team remains in place for the theatreland transfer, including playwright Ben Weatherwill and director Sean Mathias. The set and costume design is by Morgan Large, the lighting design by Nick Richings, and the sound design is by Andy Graham.

Seating Spoilt the experience

The show was good but was spoilt by the worst seating arrangements. So uncomfortable for tall people with no room to move at all during the performance
