What is All About Eve about?

“Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.”

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 his new adaptation of All About Eve, a razor-sharp, unsettling exposé of the eternal obsession at the heart of show-business.

All About Eve will run from 2 February 2019 until 11 May 2019 at the Noel Coward Theatre, London.
