The multi-award-winning Siren Productions returns to Project Arts Centre and Tiger Dublin Fringe with the Irish premiere of the global phenomenon GROUNDED by George Brant.
It’s the speed.
It’s the G-Force pressing you back as you tear the sky.
It’s the ride.
She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. She’s grounded. Her career in the sky is over. Now she flies remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and returning to her family at night. As the pressure mounts, the boundaries begin to blur.
Clare Dunne stars in this grippingly compulsive play directed by Selina Cartmell.
“A searing piece of writing”
“an exhilarating 75 minutes … Grounded’s originality is not to be missed”
Le Cool Dublin
“a brilliantly nuanced performance … Cartmell’s direction is striking”
“Thoughtful, compelling and utterly engaging, Grounded is an exhilarating tour de force … the stand-out performance of the festival. A must see.”
Running time: 75 min
GROUNDED is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
