NT Live: All About Eve

Gillian Anderson (The X-Files, The Fall, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Downton Abbey, The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society) lead in All About Eve, filmed live for cinemas from the West End in London.

All About Eve is adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 film by Joseph L Mankiewicz starring Bette Davis, and the play “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr. Ivo 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.

All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. 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.
