Yours Faithfully, Edna Welthorpe (Mrs)

Yours Faithfully Edna Welthorpe (Mrs) directed by Multi award winning and BAFTA nominated director Chris Shepherd and made in collaboration with Tom Fisher, Martha Halliday, Jocie Juritz and Hannah McNally. A short animation in tribute to Joe Orton (Entertaining Mr Sloane, Loot) to mark the 50th anniversary of his death. 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 Jams and Littlewood home catalogue service.
