Me and My Voice

Eva has been described as a personal and professional carer of children whose work is coloured by her experience as a former child protection lawyer and a mother.  Her story telling celebrates the unheard voices of young people and women who are at the heart of what she does.

Eva has been creating work since 2015. Her stage plays have been developed and produced at London theatres to include The National, Soho Theatre, Theatre503 and Southwark Playhouse together with Traverse Theatre in Scotland.

Eva has recently transitioned into screen work and is currently developing KINSWOMAN a short film about the fragility of motherhood.  She is also working on scripts for TV.

Eva is represented by The Agency ( nq-office@theagency.co.uk )
