"Seamlessly blending the personal and the political, Grounded tells the story of a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Re-purposed to flying remote-controlled drones in the Middle East from an air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. A tour de force play for one actress, Grounded flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, targeting our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling"

"Grounded is a powerful, hallucinogenic experience. What makes it imperative viewing is that, rather than being some sci-fi dystopia, everything in Grounded is an urgent, appalling reality: an ethical minefield about which a great deal more noise needs to be made immediately.' What's on Stage 'It is a searing piece of writing.' Guardian 'Grounded is impossible to take your eyes off, from start to finish [it] is a play that holds you in its palm and grips you tight - The script is layered and interesting.' A Younger Theatre "We're gripped from the first lines of George Brant's snappy, sparky staccato script. Outstanding...' Evening Standard 'George Brant's solo play Grounded, has been named the 2012 winner of the Smith Prize.' Playbill 'It's a fine, thoughtful and empathic piece of writing.' Time Out 'The emotional whiplash from this grippingly intense one-woman play - almost hurts. This show soars across utterly believable territory.' Festmag 'What makes Brant's play exceptional is its driving, white-hot sense of identification with a woman who is not, on the face of it, a sympathetic character.' Scotsman "
