The boundaries between reality and the screen begin to blur for a woman torn between her duties as a new mother and a drone pilot in the acclaimed one-woman play Grounded. When a hotshot F-16 pilot becomes unexpectedly pregnant, she's reassigned to flying remote-controlled drones over Afghanistan. By day, she hunts terrorists remotely from an air-conditioned trailer near Las Vegas. At night, she comes face-to-face with her duties as a wife and mother. But navigating that shift may prove to be her most dangerous mission of all. George Brant's Grounded was named a Top 10 Play of 2013 by The Guardian, and won the National New Play Network's Smith Prize and the Edinburgh Festival's Fringe First award.
