About the show

Holding My Breathe is a short play which gives us a brief glimpse at the distance and closeness between lovers. This new play by Tina Jack takes us into the home of two ordinary people.

From the writer

When I began to write this play I wanted to reveal something of the hidden tension that often exists within an intimate relationship. I found it was easiest expressed in very simple everyday conversation. In my head I began to hear these two people talking – people who loved each other, yet often unwittingly hurt each other. The two characters soon took on a life of their own and said things that surprised me. I could see both sides of the story and I also began to hope it would have a ‘happy ending’. However, that is for the characters to discover.
