Award-winning, 5 star, smash hit Grounded returns to the Gate


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 hours shifts far from the battlefield hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night.

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

Critic reviews



A smart, beautiful bit of writing that mixes our moral responses to war, family and motherhood, and throws them out in all directions.

Time Out

A searing piece of writing, and gets the blistering performance it deserves from Ellinson.
