Gate Theatre’s critically-acclaimed production of George Brant’s Grounded heads to Brighton Dome this week as part of the first tour in the theatre’s 35 year history.

It plays Brighton Dome Studio Theatre on Friday, November 21.

Spokesman Chris Challis explains: “She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. Her career in the sky is over. Now, she sits in an air-conditioned trailer in Las Vegas flying remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal 12-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night.”

Grounded is a gripping new play that targets our assumptions about war, family, and what it is to be a woman.
