On the Exhale at the Black Box Theatre / Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre

The Black Box Theatre

111 West 46th Street

When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor (Tony Award® nominee Marin Ireland, reasons to be pretty) 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.

Roundabout Underground presents On the Exhale, a provocative world premiere from Martín Zimmerman (Netflix’s Narcos), directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Well, Roundabout’s Violet). Staged with propulsive, heart-pounding intensity in Roundabout’s intimate Black Box Theatre, this grippingly immediate story draws you into the white-hot center of our country’s most divisive—and most urgent—debate.
