Multi award winning and BAFTA nominated director Chris Shepherd (Dad's Dead, The Ringer) directs a short animation in tribute to Joe Orton (Entertaining Mr Sloane, Loot) to mark the 50th anniversary of his death. Voiced by Alison Steadman (Gavin and Stacey, Abigail's Party) and Robin Sebastian (Hancock's Half Hour, Babs). Joe Orton would write letters of complaint using the pseudonym of Edna Welthorpe. Using this persona Orton would wind up companies, vicars and even ridicule his own plays. In this short we see what mayhem ensues when Edna writes to Smedley's Jams and Littlewoods home catalogue service.
