GROUNDED … “Top 10 Play of 2013″ @ 7PM
With a sweeping 54 Desert Theatre League award nominations for theatrical excellence, the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s prestigious Hi-Desert Playhouse theater division presents its popular Reader’s Theater Series in a production of George Brant’s award-winning play, GROUNDED. An ace fighter pilot’s career ends early due to an unexpected pregnancy. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family at night. Pressure to track a high-profile target mounts and boundaries blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away. “Five Stars.
