Synopsis

There’s more to Edna’s sandwiches than meets the eye…

 

78-year-old Edna has always been proud of her sandwiches. Believing them to be popular delicacies, they are her legacy, the one thing she believes she will be remembered for.

 

Today, however, as she prepares sandwiches for a special occasion, her husband Jim, a complete stranger to the kitchen, is about to shatter Edna’s illusions and destroy her dreams.

 

Edna and Jim and the Perfect Sandwich is a feast for the senses, perfect to be set in a real or simulated kitchen, and a short tale of love, loss and luncheon-meat.

 

Cast

 

Edna, 78 and sprightly with it, is in her kitchen – an actual kitchen would be perfect. She is preparing sandwiches and singing to herself, probably something gentle by Michael Buble, or even Robbie Williams’s Angels ‘cos she likes to think she’s with it, does Edna.

 Jim, 81, slightly more showing his age – and definitely not ‘with it’ – watches her for a short time before breaking the moment.
