Biography

Eva Van Dok is currently a Broadway actress, and a recovered anorexic/bulemic. Eaten Alive is a one-woman theater piece that presents the lives of five women in different stages of life, all of whom have body image issues and are dealing with eating disorders. The piece shows the behaviors, thought processes and lifestyles of the women in a way that illuminates the emotional dynamic of each character as they live and function with their disorder. Eva shows attendees how easy it is to fool oneself with excuses and false promises into thinking that ‘it’s not a problem’ or that ‘I will stop once I lose these last five pounds’ -- but these are dangerous thought patterns, both physically and emotionally. She achieves this by creating characters with whom the audience can relate: a roommate, a sibling, a friend or even themselves. This piece has truly saved lives.
