All About Eve

Gillian Anderson plays 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, played by Lily James. 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, you won't want to miss this new production, from one of the world's most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove.

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.


Lily James is excellent and Gillian Anderson is incredible in one of those I Was There moments
