Why See All About Eve?
Official dates to be confirmed
In the immortal words of Bette Davis, "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night". The iconic movie that saw both Davis and Anne Baxter compete for an Oscar is finally being made into a stage play. Directed by Ivo van Hove, the bets are on to see who will be cast in the role of Eve, when it heads to the West End in Spring 2019...
IS she all that she seems?
Margot Channing is a successful stage actress on Broadway in the Forties, having won every award available, and is beloved by her fans. She has a long-term lover in Bill, a scriptwriter, and everything seems perfect. Except that the youthful ingenue roles that made her famous are drying up as she ages, and it has made her paranoid and angry.
Out of the shadows of the stage door steps Eve, a humble, drab girl who watches every performance Margot is in with a hungry thirst. Invited in to meet her idol, she soon insinuates herself into Margot's imperious life, extremely helpful and subservient, much to the suspicion of the streetwise maid,Birdie, who flatly tells Margot to watch her back.
Soon it becomes apparent that Eve is out to become a bigger Broadway star than Margot - but why stop there? She wants Bill, and Margot's life as well. As Margot's paranoia increases, her friends don't believe her, until Eve's scheming threatens to overturn her life completely

None of these four won the Oscatr, however George Sanders won the Best Supporting Actor gong for his role as the sly columnist Addison DeWitt. The movie was nominated for a staggering 14 awards, winning six.
