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…?

Ivo van Hove directs Gillian Anderson and Lily James
in his new adaptation of All About Eve, a razor-sharp,
unsettling exposé of the eternal obsession at the heart of
show-business. BAFTA Award-winner Monica Dolan
will join the cast in the role of Karen, alongside Julian
Ovenden
as Bill, Sheila Reid as Birdie and Rhashan
Stone
as Lloyd. Further casting to be announced.

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.

Ivo van Hove’s direction will be accompanied by 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.
