Summary
Maurice, a still-working actor whiles away his dwindling days playing bit parts (corpses, mostly) or at the local pub with a pair of equally frail footlights friends, drama queen Ian and taciturn Donald. Ian announces that his niece has sent her wayward daughter to stay with him. Jessie is a borderline hooligan, surly, self-centered, willful, and a prodigious drinker. Maurice looks at Jessie with unapologetic longing, appreciating things she can't see in herself, but also the idea of youth--specifically, womanly youth. Jessie appraises Maurice to see what she can get out of him, and they play at Henry Higgins tutoring Eliza Doolittle together. Both are prickly, independent egoists, and wherever they're going, neither is going quietly
