"Grounded" Explores The World Of A Creech Drone Pilot

AIR DATE: February 21, 2014

A high-flying fighter pilot finds herself unexpectedly pregnant and reassigned to the "Chair Force" of desert drone pilots in George Brant's award-winning play "Grounded." The pilot struggles with the uneasy transition from military to home life -- every night. Ultimately, both her domestic and professional roles start to blur and conflict. We talk to the playwright about his inspiration for the play, and how its acclaim has changed his life.
