Tom Glover was selected as one of three winners of the 2018 BAFTA/Rocliffe New Writing Showcase Competition. Preceding this, he has been a winner and runner up in two BBC writing competitions, with a number of projects optioned and one commissioned.


Synopsis


Quentin Tarantino meets Last of the Summer Wine in this wickedly funny, high octane comedy about growing old passionately and disgracefully.


When unscrupulous, over-confident salesman Simon Sudgebury comes knocking on the door of the seemingly timid Flora Parkin, hoping to scare her into buying an expensive alarm system, little does he realise what he is about to let himself in for.


Feisty, charismatic 75 year old Flora and her gentle 72 year old 'toy boy' lover George are not what they first appear!
