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 irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands.

In the days since seeing playwright Martin Zimmerman's On the Exhale, which is running at Slipstream Theatre Initiative in Ferndale through May 19th, I have been thinking a lot about the 1999 Columbine shooting, the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting, and the 2018 Parkland shooting. Slipstream's one-woman show, On the Exhale, centers on an unnamed single mother whose only child was killed in a shooting at his elementary school. This mother goes on a desperate journey to uncover what exactly happened in that school on that fateful September morning.

On December 14th, 2012, a lone gunman, armed with a semi-automatic rifle, walked into an elementary school and killed 27 people in a matter of moments. 20 of them were under the age of seven. Along with the rest of the world, playwright Martin Zimmerman watched the aftermath of Sandy Hook in horror, unable to fathom how "something as horrific as that wasn't going to move our national government to take meaningful action on gun control."
