SYNOPSIS: An ace fighter pilot’s career in the sky is ended early due to an unexpected pregnancy. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns home to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.

Playwright George Brant’s epic poem crafts an experience that is at once timely, human, and vital. 

"As close to perfection as is possible to imagine...Grounded is a powerful, hallucinogenic experience." - What's On Stage
