From the publishers:

In this stage adaptation of the timeless television series, Foggy, Clegg and Compo are reunited for one last adventure. Foggy has designs on winning the affections of Constance, Nora Batty’s niece and the long-suffering fiancée of the hapless Gifford Bewmont. With the help of Clegg, Foggy invites the ladies around for an evening’s entertainment but the duo are unaware that a mysterious flasher is stalking the local community. Gifford has pledged to apprehend the flasher and has mounted all-night patrols in the village. While awaiting the arrival of the ladies, Foggy is dismayed when Compo turns up unannounced and who proceeds to wreak havoc on Foggy’s careful preparations as Gifford’s efforts to capture the flasher lead to mistaken identities and even more chaos. When the flasher is eventually unmasked it turns out his intentions are benign but not before our heros are nearly undone by the enveloping madness.

A life-long native of Yorkshire, Roy Clarke will forever be associated with Last of the Summer Wine, the series he created that ran for more than three decades on the BBC and for which he wrote every episode. He also wrote its prequel, First of the Summer Wine and he is the author of the BBC TV comedies Open All Hours, Keeping Up Appearances and The Misfit.

Roy’s original work for television also includes dramas such as The Troubleshooters, The Power Game and Detective. Over many years he developed an eduring relationship with the Comedy Playhouse at the BBC, providing material for The Two Ronnies, Potter and Pygmalion Smith, which started Leonard Rossiter. He received an OBE for his contribution to British Comedy and in 2010 was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the British Comedy Awards.
