To mark the 50th anniversary of the death of British Playwright Joe Orton, Chris Shepherd has embarked on a tribute project with Dr Emma Parker (University of Leicester) and Arts Council England. Joe wrote letters of complaint under the pseudonym Edna Welthorpe. Chris has commissioned new Edna letters by writers such as David Qunatick, Arthur Mathews, Caroline Moran, Jessie Armstrong and a new film voiced by Alison Steadman. Chris will talk about the genesis of the project.
