The production is directed by Ivo van Hove, with music by Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, and also stars Monica Dolan, Ian Drysdale and Julian Ovenden.

The play is a stage adaptation of the 1950 film and Mary Orr’s short story The Wisdom of Eve, and is produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions and Fox Stage Productions.
