Atlanta Theatre Club presents the Georgia premiere of George Brant's award-winning, one-woman war tale, Grounded.
An unexpected pregnancy ends an ace fighter pilots 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.
Runtime: 90 minutes with no intermission
