NT Live Encore: All About Eve
Gillian Anderson and Lily James take the leads in this critically acclaimed production of All About Eve, recorded live in London’s West End.
All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing (Gillian Anderson). Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve (Lily James). 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 asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.
All About Eve is adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L Mankiewicz and the play The Wisdom of Eve by Mary Orr. Ivo van Hove directs this 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.
