An Arresting Night
Cooper & Walsh

Last of the Summer Wine


Show Overview

Ken Kitson as PC Cooper (Original cast member)
Louis Emerick as PC Walsh (Original cast member)

What is it about?

Based upon the two police officers ‘Cooper & Walsh’ from the BBC’s long running show ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. A unique improvisational show, where not one night can ever be the same because the ideas for the sketches are derived from the audience.

Talented actors Ken and Louis think on their feet and act out scenarios as the comical Police Officers. The officers like nothing more than to hide away from crime, the general public and to sip tea in the countryside, but seem to continually find themselves in an array of strange situations.

The show provides the audience with a relaxed atmosphere where Ken and Louis interact with audience and may even call upon volunteers. A completely different event to any other show as it is completely unrehearsed.

Running time
2 Hours including 20 minute interval.


Any age group would enjoy the show as the subjects of the scenarios are variable. Long running watchers of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ would in doubt enjoy the show immensely.

Ideal for audience sizes ranging from 50 – 300.

For smaller audiences: informal seating (tables and chairs) approach is preferred with bar open throughout.

For larger audiences where there is no scope to changing the seating layout: regular theatre seating would work.

Ticket Pricing
In the region of £10-£8 to £10-12.

Previous Performance

The show was opened in June 2009 in the birth place of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’, Holmfirth.

It was a great success and enjoyed by all that attended.

This successful evening led to the show gaining sponsorship to allow Ken and Louis to take the show on tour.
