GROUNDED OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS

THEATRE IS EASY
NEW YORK THEATRE REVIEW
Synopsis: In George Brant’s Grounded, 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.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"The heroine of Grounded, a solo play by George Brant, feels most alive when she’s up in the air. A fighter pilot in the Air Force, she loves everything about her job — the suit, the speed, the danger, the respect — but most of all the “blue,” as she calls the wide expanses of sky through which she steers her plane, searching out the bad guys in sorties over Iraq."
"It is a difficult thing to make a captivating experience out of a single monologue. Yet for 70 minutes the story we hear in playwright George Brant's Grounded, a production by Page 73 directed by Ken Rus Schmoll at Walkerspace, keeps us mesmerized. Brant's words pulse with the rhythms of an epic war poem, rendered in the most natural way by the talented actor Hannah Cabell, but this solo play brings a modern sensibility to the ancient theme of war that Homer could have never imagined."
"If every play I see this year is as strong and effective as Grounded, then 2014 is going to make me one happy little reviewer. Presented by Page 73, Grounded is the searing account of one woman’s psychological deterioration during her participation in the military's controversial drone project.The play features a tour-de-force turn by Hannah Cabell in what will surely be remembered as one of the best performances of the year. Yes, I know it's still January. I stand by my conviction."
"Grounded, now running at Walkerspace, offers a rare and precious experience: theatre that is both soul searing and core shaking. The one-woman show, written by George Brant and tightly directed by two-time Obie recipient Ken Rus Schmoll, centers on a female fighter pilot’s transition from flying planes to operating drones."
"Last night I was blown away, though happily not literally, by a brilliant stage performance at Page 73, a theater in Tribeca, in New York City, that often presents plays that have never before been produced in the city. Its current production is Grounded, a play written by George Brant that takes on America’s drone warfare program. It’s a one-woman show, acted by Hannah Cabell, who delivers a searing performance that left me stunned. She portrays a gung-ho, top-gun fighter-bomber pilot in Iraq and Afghanistan who, after becoming pregnant, is assigned to pilot remote drones at Creech Air Force Base outside Las Vegas."
