NT Live: All About Eve
Lily James and Gillian Anderson star in this new play from the National Theatre's 2019 season of live recordings direct from the London stage.
"An elegant backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter). Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing (Bette Davis), weaving a melancholy life story to Margo, who takes pity on the girl. Director Joseph L Mankiewicz turns the tale and exposes Eve as a Machiavellian conniver who cold-bloodedly uses Margo to rise to the top of the theatrical heap." (National Theatre)
