On the Exhale
by Martín Zimmerman

Directed by Matt Pfeiffer
 
November 29, 2019 — December 22, 2019
Theatre Exile 1340 South 13th St

When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime – and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we’re all part of the problem.

Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
