Storyline

Our story opens with Julia (Laura Glover) on her way to collect the very last autograph she needs; that of actress Evelyn Hawthorn (Josie Lawrence), only then will she be able to rest easy having collected the autographs of every actor to appear in the popular soap opera Jubilee Road. This self-imposed mission is something she is doing to honor the memory of her father who died when she was 9 years old. Evelyn played the gutsy, hot-blooded charwoman Vi Cardle in Jubilee Road. A character whose life and loves were the stuff of gossip and scorn on the street. A strong woman who attracted men and inspired women to jealousy, and whose happiness was only ever paper thin. Now 86 and in a care home on the South Coast, Evelyn is bitter about her past career, she has no time for Vi Cardle, Jubilee Road or for autograph hunters! Written by Toni Staples
