Howerd's End

The Old Joint Stock Pub and Theatre, 4 Temple Row West, Birmingham B2 5NY
T: 0121 200 1892


Frankie Howerd was one of Britain’s most loved comedians for half a century. But he had a secret. And the secret’s name was Dennis.

This hugely acclaimed play by Mark Farrelly Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope, Jarman takes you to the heart of Frankie and Dennis' clandestine relationship, which lasted from the 1950s 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. Come and say farewell to a legend... and learn the art of letting go.

A welcome return for the sell-out hit of Birmingham Comedy Festival 2021.
