Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) star in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London. All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing: legend and true star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve – don’t you? Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old. All About Eve is adapted by van Hove from the film of the same name by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and the short story ‘The Wisdom of Eve’ by Mary Orr. Van Hove directs this new stage version with set and lighting design from Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG.
Adapted and directed for the stage by Ivo van Hove
