8pm Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat, 2pm Sun. An unexpected pregnancy ends an ace fighter pilot's career in the sky. 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. -I can't think of a single American who shouldn't see this play.- Chicago Stage Standard. Short-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award. Brick Monkey is thrilled to welcome playwright George Brant back to Southeast Ohio. Brant's play Defiant received a staged reading as part of the 9/11 ten-year anniversary event in 2011. Grounded has received rave reviews from New York to London to San Francisco to Australia. So don't miss this show Time Out London called -a smart, beautiful bit of writing that mixes our moral responses to war, family and motherhood, and throws them out in all directions. Spunky and funny, Brant's script is completely absorbing and hard to forget.
