A sold-out hit in London, "Grounded" tells the story of a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the skies over the Middle East. She finds herself instead flying remote-controlled drones half a world away while in a comfortable trailer just outside of Vegas. Her 12-hour shift now consists of staring at a grey-screen monitor targeting terrorists by day and playing dutiful wife and mother by night. Soon finding herself struggling to play her new dual roles, this intense and thought-provoking blend of the personal and political is a one-woman tour-de-force-performance. Featuring Resident Company Member Megan Anderson.
