February 19, 2017: Marin Ireland is a delicate conduit for raw emotions. Watching her deliver the hourlong monologue On the Exhale, Martín Zimmerman’s carefully wrought study of a mother undone by loss, you half expect her to crack and shatter before your eyes. With her pale skin and fine, Pre-Raphaelite features, this actress hardly seems built for the depths of anguish she delivers with such regularity and expertise on New York stages. Yet it’s the illusion she conveys of transparency — as if she were indeed made of spun glass — that lets us perceive so clearly a blinding darkness within.READ THE REVIEW

When a random act of gun violence tears one woman’s world apart, she finds herself caught in the crosshairs of power lost and, very possibly, regained.
Tony Award® nominee Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete) stars in this gripping new play by Martín Zimmerman. Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Well, Roundabout’s Violet) directs the 60-minute tour de force world premiere for Roundabout Underground.
