Theatre: Howerd's End

Howerd’s End explores the clandestine relationship between comedy legend Frankie Howerd and Dennis Heymer from the 1950s until Frankie’s death in 1992.

Remember the last time someone kissed you and meant it?

Howerd’s End is a two-hander exploring both the development of Frankie’s comedy, and the clandestine union which made it all possible: his extraordinary forty-year relationship with his lover, friend and anchor Dennis Heymer, whose existence was strictly guarded from the public in Frankie’s lifetime.

More than simply a tribute show about a comedian who outlasted them all, Howerd’s End is also a piercingly honest love story about a relationship that tried to defy every odd – including death.

Written by Mark Farrelly
