Life By The Throat

This is the story of one man’s life from birth to death – written and performed by a woman.

James Joseph Patrick Keogh is a force to be reckoned with. Born into poverty and madness, he survives on wit, laughter and one ingenious scheme after another.

But whether it’s sprinting on sports day, chasing oblivion or running away from cops, a fall is sure to come. Question is, will he survive it?

Former Coronation Street actor turned award-winning writer/performer Eve Steele channels the life of this remarkable individual in a performance that is spectacular, funny and heartwrenching.

It’s a celebration of the men she has known, loved and wanted to punch in the face.
