Academy Award-nominated and BAFTA-winning actor Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown, Enola Holmes 1 and 2, The King’s Speech, Harry Potter, Burton and Taylor) stars as Noele (or Nolly to her friends) who was a legend in her own lifetime. As flame-haired widow Meg Richardson in the long-running soap opera Crossroads, she was one of the most famous people in Britain. Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the peak of Nolly’s fame, she was axed without ceremony, without warning and with no explanation. With the boss’s words “all good things must come to an end” ringing in her ears, Noele Gordon found herself thrown out of the show that was her life for over 18 years.
Noele Gordon is at the height of her success, with her famous soap opera Crossroads riding high in the ratings. Then she’s suddenly sacked overnight - but why?
With exit day looming, Nolly is desperate to know how she’ll be killed off from Crossroads… But her farewell is so shocking nobody in the cast could have predicted it.
To save her career, Nolly returns to the stage in one of theatre’s hardest roles. Riddled with self-doubt and unable to escape her brutal firing, can Nolly prove her doubters wrong?
