Landing Spring 2016:
The second ever UK tour of the global phenomenon Grounded by George Brant.
It’s the speed
It’s the G-Force pressing you back as you tear the sky
It’s the ride
She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. She’s grounded. Her career in the sky is over. Now she flies remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and returning to her family at night. As the pressure mounts, the boundaries begin to blur. Thrillingly targeting our perceptions about modern warfare and how we live and fight in an increasingly virtual world, this grippingly compulsive play stars Janet Coulson and is directed by Richard Baron, with a searing sound design by the award-winning composer Jon Beales.
“A stratospheric level of theatrical intensity” ***** Daily Telegraph
