Pink String and Ceiling Wax
Written by Roland Pertwee
Set in the parlour of the Strachans’ house in Brighton during the late 1800’s, Pink String and Sealing Wax is a domestic drama concerning a repressed family whose cold and undemonstrative father comes to realise the full worth of his children. Edward Strachan controls his family with little tenderness and understanding. His loving and ambitious children are pushed to the limits by his lack of attentiveness. When his eldest son becomes associated with a married woman who plots to incriminate him in the murder of her husband, Edward realises how very wrong his priorities and attitudes were and fights to protect his son and reunite himself with his estranged family.
