ON THE EXHALE

FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 9

by MARTÍN ZIMMERMAN
directed by STEPHANIE WITTELS WACHS
featuring AMY BRUCE

REGIONAL PREMIERE

“You always imagined it happening to you.”

In one moment, with one flick of a finger, a mother’s life is changed forever. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, we follow one woman down the rabbit-hole of grief in a riveting 60 minute tour de force starring the spectacular Amy Bruce.

A carefully wrought study of a mother undone by loss...[On the Exhale] approaches the subject of American gun violence from a startlingly original perspective.
— The New York Times
Remarkable [...] The subject has been explored before, but never with this much emotional power.
— The Observer
On The Exhale makes its points succinctly and intelligently [...] it never feels like it’s preaching to the choir.
— The Hollywood Reporter
