March 15 – April 2
“It’s a pilot’s worst nightmare,” huffs our nameless protagonist when she’s grounded by the Air Force. After years soaring through Iraqi skies in an F-16, an unplanned pregnancy triggers a mandatory reassignment to Creech Air Force Base just outside Las Vegas. Her new mission: piloting drones in the same skies she has been forced to abandon. But there’s something very different about this new way of flying and killing. A fiercely relevant and compelling one woman show, Grounded explores the consequences, both moral and psychological, of America’s transition to drone warfare.
Running time: 70 minutes with no intermission.
Advisory: Ages 15 and up due to the subject matter and strong language.
Please note: The doors to the theater will open 20 minutes prior to showtime.
