Pink String & Sealing Wax
by Roland Pertwee, producer Peggy Tomlinson
26-28 November 1981
The young son of a chemist, rebelling against his strict father, finds himself inadvertently wrapped up in murder and blackmail in Victorian Brighton.
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.
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.
