GEST presents the original award-winning production Grounded by George Brant in collaboration with Gate Theatre, London.

She's a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She's pregnant. Her career in the sky is over. Now, she sits in an air-conditioned trailer in Las Vegas flying remote-controlled drones over the Middle East.

She struggles through surreal 12 hour shifts far from the battlefield hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night.

Winner of a Fringe First award (2013), Grounded is a gripping, compulsive new play that flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence. This extraordinary play targets our assumptions about war, family, and what it is to be a woman.

Grounded was supported by Arts Council England and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

"A searing piece of writing, and gets the blistering performance

it deserves from Ellinson." The Guardian

"An essential story for our times." The Scotsman
