Eve’s writing career began with her first play, Lub You, part of Manchester’s 24:7 Theatre Festival in 2009, which she also performed in.
The play received nominations from the Equity North West Theatre Awards, 24:7 Awards and the Manchester Theatre Awards where Eve won Best Performance in a Fringe Production.

The show toured nationally in 2017 and was part of the new writing festival at the King’s Head, London in July 2018. Cardboard Citizens were producing a tour of Life by the Throat to prisons and hostels when the pandemic struck in 2020, argh!
