A POP culture icon will battle a pretender to her throne in Colwyn Bay, Prestatyn and Rhyl.

Gillian Anderson and Lily James are set star in NT Live's stage version of the classic movie All About Eve screens live to Theatr Colwyn, the Scala and Vue in April

Immortalised as Agent Scully in 90's phenomenon The X Files, the play will see Anderson reunite with fellow castmate of BBC's War and Peace Lily James, best known for star turns in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and Downton Abbey.

Adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L Mankiewicz and the play The Wisdom of Eve, the play tells the story of Margo Channing - a legend, a true star of the theatre who has always held the spotlight and her biggest fan Eve, a golden girl next door.

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.

To catch these stars battle for the limelight, All About Eve screens to all three cinemas on Thursday, April 11 at 7pm.

Tickets for Theatr Colwyn are £12.50 available from theatrcolwyn.co.uk, £15 for the Scala from merlinprestatyn.admit-one.eu and £18.29 for Vue from myvue.com.
