Atlanta Theatre Club will produce the Georgia premiere of George Brant’s award-winning solo show, Grounded, August 13-17. For tickets and more information, please visit atlantatheatreclub.com.
ABOUT THE SHOW An unexpected pregnancy ends an ace fighter pilot’s career in the sky. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away. Grounded explores a myriad of compelling issues, from the ethics of drone warfare, to mental health, work-life balance, motherhood and the unquestionable role technology plays in our future.
ABOUT THE COMPANY Led by an all-female creative team, Grounded marks ATC’s fourth-ever production as a company and its most ambitious to date. ATC is an itinerant, female-driven theatre company, producing contemporary work rooted in reality and giving voice to complex, often underrepresented characters.
