Beckie Darlington presents Gate Theatre's production

GROUNDED

  • By George Brant
  • 4 November 2014 - 8 November 2014
  • The Studio

She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. Her career in the sky is over. Now, she sits in an air-conditioned trailer in Las Vegas flying remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal 12-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night.

A gripping, compulsive new play that flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, and targets our assumptions about war, family, and what it is to be a woman.

Supported by Arts Council England and Jerwood Charitable Foundation (Jerwood Young Designers Programme)
