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 considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
