The Human Race Theatre Presents

"Grounded" - Sept. 8 - 25, 2022:

Grounded tells the story of a hot-shot F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. After maternity leave, she is reassigned as a reluctant operator of remotely piloted aircraft in the Middle East. From an air-conditioned trailer in the desert near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through dreamlike 12-hour shifts hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night, leading her into a downward spiral. The lines crumble between home and professional worlds, and a mistake on the job might just cost her everything.

By George Brant

Directed by Emily N. Wells

GROUNDED was first produced as a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere by SF Playhouse (California), Borderlands Theater (Arizona), and Unicorn Theatre (Missouri).
