Roundabout Theatre Company has today announced that the world premiere of On the Exhale, by Martín Zimmerman, directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman, and starring Obie Award winner Marin Ireland, will officially open one week earlier on Sunday 19 February.

This is the second play in Roundabout Underground’s newly expanded two-play season. 

On the Exhale begins preview performances Off-Broadway on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, April 2, 2017. All tickets for Roundabout Underground productions are $25.

 When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor (Ireland) 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.

Now in its tenth season, Roundabout Underground has proven an enormous success since the program debuted in 2007 with Stephen Karam’s hit comedy Speech and Debate. Karam’s first play commissioned by Roundabout—Sons of the Prophet—was a Pulitzer Prize finalist and his second commission, The Humans, won the Tony Award for Best Play after transferring from the Laura Pels Theatre to Broadway. Joshua Harmon also made his professional debut with Roundabout Underground with the hit Bad Jews. His most recent play, Significant Other, premiered Off-Broadway at Roundabout and is transferring to Broadway this season. Fellow Underground alumnus Steven Levenson (The Language of Trees) is making his Broadway debut this season with the much anticipated Dear Evan Hansen, while simultaneously debuting his new play, If I Forget, at the Laura Pels Theatre.
