When tragedy strikes, take a breath and get a grip

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. 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. This is the New Hampshire premiere of Martín Zimmerman's gripping play, which draws you into the white-hot center of our country's most urgent debate.

Running Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes.

*Content Transparency: Explores gun violence and parental grief.

ASL Interpretation: Sunday, February 18 at 2:00 pm at the Bank of New Hampshire Stage in Concord, NH.  Audiences using this service will have reserved seats at the front.

Let's Talk About It: Following the Sunday, February 18 matinee performance, audience members can join a post-show conversation about the impact of gun violence on communities in New Hampshire.  Dr. Keith Loud from Dartmouth Health will frame the conversation in terms of the public health impact of gun violence while Senator Deb Altshiller will provide insight into recent legislative action.  The conversation will be moderated by professional facilitator and keynote speaker, Dr.Gerri King.
