The production transfers to Off West End venue The Other Palace this autumn, following its premiere at the Theatre Royal Windsor, home to most of McKellen's recent stage work.

The play reunites the actors with each other and also director Sean Mathias. The trio worked together on a production of Aladdin at the Old Vic in the early noughties.
It seems there's no slowing down for McKellen, who in 2019 celebrated turning 80 by touring a one-man show, regaling audiences with anecdotes from his life on stage and screen. Last winter he reminded us he's not above a pantomime either, performing in Mother Goose in the West End and in tour.
Frank and Percy is another chance for audiences to see the seasoned star live on stage.
