By George Brant

Directed by Paula Garfield 

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 is an award winning play and was named a top 10 London play in 2013 by the Guardian and London Evening Standard.

Originally a one-woman show, Deafinitely Theatre's production will use two actors to creatively combine British Sign Language, visual storytelling and the spoken word.

"Deafinitely Theatre, a company that incorporates English and British Sign Language into every production, giving both equal aesthetic weight, makes Brant’s play seem new-minted in a production by Paula Garfield."
