Grounded by George Brant
Grounded, by George Brant, is the story of a female Air Force pilot who is grounded after becoming pregnant with her first child. When she returns to duty, she is reassigned from fighter jets to drones and must learn to navigate the intersection of wartime and home life. 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 will be performed by Amber Kelly and directed by Lexi Saunders, as a production of the Theater of Thought Company. Amber was last seen onstage in Another Kind of Love: A Punk Rock Play with InFusion Theater Company. Some of her previous roles include Cate in Blasted, Dottie in Killer Joe, and Kayleen in Gruesome Playground Injuries. She is represented by Lilys Talent. Lexi Saunders hasrecently worked with Steppenwolf, Oracle, Steep, About Face, Mudlark, Pride Films and Plays, and was selected for the inaugural Victory Gardens Directors Inclusion Initiative for emerging Chicago directors.
