Jack Lear

Synopsis:
focuses on the fundemental question: what are you supposed to do with old folk. Jack Lear is a tetchy old trawlerman bitter at never having been blessed with male offspring. Instead he has brought up his children Morgana, Freda and Victoria to be men-daughters, handy with a filleting knife and unafraid to speak their minds. Now it's up to them to decide who takes in the old salt and his posse of drunken friends. Benison trims his source as efficiently as gutting a haddock, discarding the subplot and empha¬sising the sexual competition of the two elder sis¬ters for the attention of edmund, a weasily solici¬tor with powers of attorney over the old man's pos¬sessions.
