LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE

By Roy Clarke.  Directed by Andrew Wilson.

Playing dates: 19 – 24 March 2018

AUDITION/READING: THURSDAY 21 DECEMBER 2017 at 7.30pm

Foggy is planning to entertain Constance, a new lady friend, in Clegg’s house, whilst trying to keep it secret from Compo.  The lady in question is Nora Batty’s niece and her fiancé of fourteen years, Gifford Bewmont, isn’t too pleased with the idea so you can expect some comical fireworks.  Added to the mix, there’s a flasher on the loose and Gifford is keen to track him down.

This is a stand-alone play written by the man who wrote all the TV episodes.  It’s very funny throughout and enters the realm of farce towards the end, as it did on TV.  No sliding down mountains in tin baths, but there is a wheelbarrow!  Obviously, our audience will be expecting – if not full impersonations – a significant nod in the direction of a copy of the long-running TV series.
