Gripping and compulsive, Grounded challenges our assumptions about modern warfare, family and how we live and fight in an increasingly virtual world.

Flying fast and free as one of the Air Force’s finest, The Pilot is grounded when she falls pregnant.

After three years raising her child she is desperate to return to the blue, but the rules of the game have changed.

Drones are the new top gun. That means 12-hour shifts hunting terrorists by day then driving home to be a wife and mother by night.

Gripping and compulsive, Grounded challenges our assumptions about modern warfare, family and how we live and fight in an increasingly virtual world.

“Brant’s snappy, slippery, poetic, stark text is about as close to perfection as it’s possible to imagine.” What’s On Stage

“Grounded is a heartbreaking, beautiful, necessary and perfectly-structured solo drama… an essential story for our times.” The Scotsman
