Second Thought Theatre presents Grounded
When a fighter pilot at the top of her game is grounded due to an unexpected pregnancy, she is reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas. By day, she hunts and kills terrorists. By night, she returns home to domestic life with her husband and daughter. Questions of empathy and moral responsibility in the face of impossibly difficult choices live at the heart of this moving portrait of a young woman confronted with the harsh realities of modern warfare.
Grounded will challenge actor Jenny Ledel to explore the clash between a career in the typically masculine world of modern warfare and the more traditional role of wife and mother. STT Artistic Director Alex Organ will direct.
