Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta (NTofP) will present George Brant’s powerful psychological thriller, GROUNDED.
Engaging, fast paced and emotionally charged, GROUNDED follows the story of a female pilot who matches her male colleagues flight for flight, drink for drink, and drives down the freeway blasting AC/DC. The pilot’s world takes a drastic turn when she is forced to stop flying and become a drone operator. The vastness of flying military jets over deserts and being at one with the blue has now been replaced with drones. Death delivered by remote control. A virtual battlefield.
GROUNDED is directed by Dom Mercer (Old 505 Theatre’s Little Borders and The Block Universe (Or So It Goes), and Sydney Fringe’s Silent Theatre); and stars stage and screen regular, Emily Havea (Bell Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Griffin Theatre’s Kill Climate Deniers; and TV’s Wentworth and Sisters).
Brant’s celebrated play is an Edinburgh Festival Fringe First award winner, a Lucille Lortel Award winner and has a screenplay in development starring Anne Hathaway.
