WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway (Interstellar, Les Misérables, Twelfth Night) returns to The Public in George Brant's (Elephant's Graveyard, The Mourners' Bench), spellbinding, ripped-from-the-headlines play Grounded. An ace fighter pilot reassigned to a remote-controlled drone faces twelve-hour shifts hunting targets from her Air Force trailer followed by twelve in the suburbs with her family in this "gripping" (New York Times) new play about the complicated consequences of waging war without leaving home. Named one of the Best Plays of the year by both London's The Evening Standard and The Guardian, and winner of the Smith Prize for Political Theater, Grounded comes to The Public's intimate Anspacher Theater under the masterful direction of two-time Tony Award winner Julie Taymor (A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Lion King, Frida, Across the Universe).
