National Theatre Live
All About Eve
By Joseph L Mankiewicz
Adapted and directed for the stage by Ivo van Hove

Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

All About Eve tells the story of 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...?

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world's most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old. All About Eve is adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L Mankiewicz and the play “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr.

Ivo van Hove directs this new stage version with set and lighting design from Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG. Photographs: Gillian Anderson by Pari Dukovic and Lily James by Perou. Design: Bob King Creative.

Following on from their success with Sweeney Todd, One Night at The Playhouse and Avenue Q, Wiley Wolf Productions Ltd return to the Whitstable Playhouse with one mean, green mother of a musical!

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood B Movie musical, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

For the residents of Skid Row, life is full of broken dreams and dead ends. But there’s hope on the horizon for flower shop assistant, Seymour, when he discovers a mysterious new plant with killer potential. This foul-mouthed carnivore promises fame and fortune to the down and out protagonist as long as he keeps feeding it.

Will Seymour discover the true intentions of the plant before it's too late?

Filled with tongue in cheek comedy, toe-tapping musical numbers and puppets, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is a night out you won't forget!

All My Sons
by Arthur Miller
directed by Jeremy Herrin

Broadcast live from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast including Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

All My Sons is an Old Vic co-production with Headlong

The Playhouse welcomes back “The One and Only Rat Pack Show!”

Neil Gordon has performed as Frank Sinatra on stage in London’s West End Show as well as many theatres throughout the UK and worldwide.

Neil Duncan has also toured the UK with ‘The Rat Pack’ and truly captures the voice, mannerisms and mischief of Dean Martin.

In the fifties and sixties these three cool dudes ruled the roost in the entertainment capitol - Las Vegas.

Whether it’s Everybody Love Somebody, Mr Bojangles, Strangers in the Night or New York, New York, this superb show has them all and truly captures the stage presence, comedy timing and great voices of Frank, Dean and Sammy at their very best!
