Life By the Throat
A celebration of the men Eve Steele has known, loved and wanted to punch in the face. Life-long thief James Joseph Patrick Keogh is a force to be reckoned with. This is the story of his extraordinary journey, from the womb to the tomb - written and performed by a woman. Born into chaos, Jamie survives on wit, laughter and one ingenious scheme after another. But whether it's sprinting on sports day or running from the cops, a spectacular fall is sure to come. Then it's a primal question of survival. Based on a combination of lived experience and interviews with bank robbers, thieves and addicts, multi award-winning writer/performer Eve Steele channels the life of this remarkable individual in a performance that is visceral, funny and heart-wrenching.
