Grounded, Presented by Boots on the Ground Theater @ Central Rapphannock Regional Library
Jul 22 @ 7:30 pm
Grounded, Presented by Boots on the Ground Theater @ Central Rapphannock Regional Library | Fredericksburg | Virginia | United States

After an unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky, an ace fighter pilot is reassigned to operating drones from a windowless trailer in Nevada. Her 12-hour shifts hunting terrorists in the Middle East are followed by 12 hours at home, attempting to find stability within suburbia. As the pressure to track a high-profile target intensifies, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert she lives in and the one she patrols half a world away. Winner of the Smith Prize for Political Theatre, George Brant’s Grounded pulses with ferocity, empathy, and lyricism while confronting the chasm between warfare and homecomings. Come witness Boots on the Ground Theater’s national tour of Grounded in Downtown Fredericksburg. The running time is 75 minutes with no intermission, and the production features strong language and mature themes.

Both performances will feature a post-show discussion that responds to the issues surrounding veterans and the themes of Grounded, including parenthood and warfare, drone ethics, PTSD, identity, homecomings, stigmas, and more. The show will partner with local veterans and counselors to moderate the discussion after each performance.
