About On the Exhale

European premiere
China Plate and Audible in association with New Theatre Royal Portsmouth

Like a child, a weapon won’t be satisfied until it dominates your every thought.

After a devastating school shooting, a woman develops an obsession that begins to take over every aspect of her existence.

Martín Zimmerman’s ‘startlingly original’ (New York Times) play is a compulsive and visceral examination of American gun violence, directed by double Fringe First award-winner Christopher Haydon (Grounded, The Christians).
