The Wisdom of Eve, Cork Arts Theatre, Nov 1st-4th 2023

“Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night”


 After their hugely successful show “Let’s Go To The Movies” in the Aula Maxima in April, The UCC Players are delighted to be back on stage at the Cork Arts Theatre with their new production of “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr.
Shy, sincere and conscientious, Eve Harrington’s dream is realised when she is taken on as a personal secretary by her actress idol, Margo Crane. However, Eve's seemingly innocent and devoted demeanour masks her true intentions– to usurp Margo's position in the theatre world and become the new reigning star. The story unfolds through a series of betrayals, deceptions, and manipulations highlighting the cutthroat nature of the entertainment industry and the complexities of human relationships.
Adapted from the short story by the author, the story provided the basis for the Academy Award winning classic film “All About Eve”

(starring Bette Davis and Anne Baxter) and the hit musical “Applause”.

The perfect way to extend your jazz weekend, this stage version is an engrossing and revealing inside story of life in the world of 1950’s New York theatre, featuring an array of unforgettable characters, razor sharp dialogue and an incredible jazz soundtrack.
