About Big Breath
Deep in self-isolation and unable to leave her third-floor walkup, the Woman is trapped by fear and privilege as much as her circumstances. Her only company comes from the other voices within her as she is goaded by her inner gym teacher to venture out into the world. This beautiful poetic one-woman play explores what it means to take action, find light, and breathe during quarantine.
BIG BREATH by Elizabeth Gjelten is a finalist for the 2020 Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition. Directed by Ansley Valentine, it stars Tony Award nominee Elizabeth Stanley.
