ON THE EXHALE Examines Gun Violence in America at Iowa Stage Theater Company
Martin zimmerman‘s On The Exhale performed by company-in-residence artist Donna Scarfe is presented by Donna Scarfe and the Iowa Stage Theater Company launch program at Westminster Presbyterian Church, July 9 and 10 at 7 p.m.
On The Exhale examines our bilateral relationship with guns through the eyes of a grieving mother who has become passionate about guns.
When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime and to the overwhelming sense of power that comes with holding onto life and life. dead in his hands. Examining the canon of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we are all part of the problem.
