Theatre lovers can catch George Brant’s award-winning one-hander Grounded at the Baxter in November.
Grounded tells the story of a female F16 fighter pilot, whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Instead, she finds herself directing remote-controlled drone strikes in Afghanistan from an air-conditioned trailer (known as the chair force) in the Nevada Deserts in Las Vegas.
Among the many accolades this topical piece has picked up are the Fringe First award at the 2013 Ediburgh Festival and the National New Play Network’s 2012 Smith Prize. It is currently being performed at venues around the world.
Directed by Christopher Weare and starring Mikkie-dene le Roux, the play runs from 4 to 28 November at 20h15 nightly and matinees on Saturdays at 17h30.
