SYNOPSIS

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.

REVIEWS

THEATERMANIA:
"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."

THE NEW YORK TIMES: Pulled Down From the Sky, Still Lethal
"A commanding Hannah Cabell imbues the nameless protagonist with a tough, cocky self-satisfaction."

TIME OUT NEW YORK:
"Directed with exquisite control by Ken Rus Schmoll, [Cabell] holds us rapt as she navigates the growing tumult of Brant’s sharp-eyed, timely script."
