Grounded: theatre in flight

03 December 2014

Grounded – a theatrical work currently showing on international stages – has landed in Cape Town for its South African premiere this week at the Arena Theatre, Hiddingh campus.

The acclaimed work has won the Fringe First award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the National New Play Network's Smith Prize. Written by George Brant and presented by the Mechanicals, it follows the unusual journey of a drone pilot living on the opposite side of the world. Dismissive of her paradoxical role as a safe combatant, the protagonist – a trained female fighter pilot – explores the shifting roles of the military in a contemporary battlefield.


Venue: Arena Theatre 37 Orange Street, Gardens

Dates: 04 - 13 December
