About the play:
Breath, Boom dramatizes the relationship between sexual abuse in the family and the resulting disintegration of family relationships. Among the compelling characters are: a step-father who is an alcoholic; a runaway foster child bullied by fellow inmates; a woman who kills her abusive husband; and a cellmate who has aged out of gang-life. The playwright dramatizes a girl’s path to survival when trapped by urban poverty and violence when there is little recourse but to become a victim, sexual object or survive by selling drugs.
