Stagedoor presents Grounded
Grounded, by George Brant, is the story of a female Air Force pilot who is grounded after becoming pregnant with her first child. When she returns to duty, she is reassigned from fighter jets to drones and must learn to navigate the intersection of wartime and home life. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns 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.
This powerful one-woman show will be the first Dallas-Fort Worth production by Stagedoor. The production will be supported by an all-female creative team. Grounded features Robin Clayton as the Pilot. The creative team includes Maigan McPherson (Director), Kristen Rogers (Dramaturgy), and Tina S. Britt (Lighting). It is moving, edgy, and thought-provoking.
