“Gripping…. a searing piece of writing.” – The Guardian
Fact and fiction begin to blur for a female fighter pilot in this psychological thriller. Grounded delivers a nail-biting climax as the pilot’s state of mind unravels in a fast-moving world, technology speeding into the future unchecked.
Our heroine is forced to stop flying and co-opted into “the chair force” as a reluctant drone operator. Death delivered by remote control. A way to keep pilots safe, but the mind doesn’t always follow orders. Is the pilot flying the drone or is the drone flying her?
Buckle up and join us for the exhilarating ride!
“Audiences will be knocked breathless by the end of the piece. Emily Havea (from the sold-out season of Black Birds’ Brown Skin Girl) is perfect for the role and her performance will be one audiences will remember for a long time” – Dom Mercer, Director.
Grounded is an Edinburgh Fringe First award winner, with a screenplay in development starring Anne Hathaway.
