PJ Harvey will score new stage adaptation of All About Eve

24 September 2018, 16:25 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

All About Eve will be recreated in a new stage adaptation for London's West End, complete with a score by PJ Harvey.

The play originally debuted as a theatre production called The Wisdom of Eve, and in 1950 was made into a bestselling movie.

Now All About Eve is getting revamped for a new run of shows in London, with Gillian Anderson will take on the Bette Davis role, and Baby Driver‘s Lily James will perform alongside her as the awe-stricken fan.

PJ Harvey is set to soundtrack the theatre production. She's no stranger to scoring stage productions, having soundtracked 2016'sThe Nest.

The West End production will be directed by Ivo van Hove, who was responsible for the David Bowie Lazarus production.

Harvey's most recent record The Hope Six Demolition Project is out now.

All About Eve kicks off at London's Noël Coward Theatre on 2 February 2019, and runs until 11 May. Tickets will go on general sale at 10am on 28 September.
