A Lady of Letters
by Alan Bennett

Miss Ruddock writes letters - not, unfortunately, social communications filled with harmless news, but letters of complaint, comment and, occasionally, officious praise to various businesses and government departments.  She complains about the lack of care she assumes the child living opposite is receiving and ends up in prison.  There, ironically, Miss Ruddock finds freedom and is, for possibly the first time, happy.
