All About Eve, a brand new stage adaptation of the 1950 film of the same title, is heading to the Noël Coward Theatre in February 2019. Directed by the visionary Ivo Van Hove and starring the immensely talented pair Gillian Anderson and Lily James, the show could hardly be in better hands.

The original film All About Eve starred Bette Davis in the role of Broadway star Margo Channing with Anne Baxter playing the part of young actress Eve Harrington. Alongside sweeping critical acclaim, it won six Academy Awards including Best Picture and was among the first 50 films to be selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

Director Ivo Van Hove is a multi-award winner and the Artistic Director of Toneelgroep Amsterdam. His credits include A View from the Bridge, Ring Cycle and Roman Tragedies.

Gillian Anderson is a multi-award winning actress and writer best known for her long-running role in the TV series The X-Files. Her stage credits span the UK and the U.S. and include A Doll's House, The Vagina Monologues and A Streetcar Named Desire.

Lily James is a household name thanks to her role in Downton Abbey and has most recently starred in the film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. No stranger to the stage, she has performed shows such as Vernon God Little, The Seagull and Romeo and Juliet.

Anderson and James are joined by Monica Dolan (B*EASTS, Plaques & Tangles, King Lear), Stanley Townsend (The Weir, Happy Now?, The Nether), Sheila Reid (Othello, The Three Sisters, My Mother Said I Never Should), Rhashan Stone (Sweeney Todd, The Strange Death of John Doe, Our Town) and Julian Ovenden (The Treatment, My Night With Reg, Showboat). Further cast includes Ian Drysdale, Tsion Habte, Charles Hagerty, Grace Stone, Philip Voyzey, Merric Boyd, Fejiro Emasiobi, Jessie Mei Li, Chanelle Modi, Stuart Nunn, Phillipa Peak and Michael Warburton.

The show will feature music by PJ Harvey, multi-instrumentalist, composer and darling of the critics. Her alt-rock and punk infused discography spans 12 albums and she has a glittering catalogue of awards to her name including an MBE for services to music.

All About Eve will run from February to May 2019. A big-name jewel adapted from an enduring classic, All About Eve promises to be an engrossing and winsome night at the theatre.
