What the critics are saying:

"QUITE THE GUT PUNCH! Megan Anderson soars...A brilliant tour de force...the exquisitely wistful effect lasts and lasts. A deeply evocative production superbly directed by Derek Goldman. It may just alter you."
–Baltimore Sun

"GRIPPING! Megan Anderson scores direct hit at Everyman Theatre. Artistically, this show is as tight as a Thunderbird formation."
–Baltimore Post-Examiner

"A TOUR DE FORCE PERFORMANCE! Anderson keeps you captivated for 75 minutes."
–MD Theatre Guide

"SOARS HIGH...GLUING AUDIENCE MEMBERS TO THEIR SEATS! Anderson is absolutely sensational...we are mesmerized by [her] everyone move. A no-holds-barred, exceptionally enthralling tour-de-force."
–DC Metro Theater Arts

"A stunning piece of theatre...Anderson is remarkable."

The sold-out, award-winning London hit lands in Baltimore for the first time in a new production at Everyman Theatre starring 2014 City Paper's Best Actress and Resident Company Member Megan Anderson (Crimes of the Heart, Tribes). She's a hot-rod F-16 fighter pilot. Her unexpected pregnancy ends her high-flying career over the Middle Eastern skies. She finds herself instead flying remote-controlled drones half a world away while in a comfortable trailer just outside of Vegas. An intense and thought-provoking blend of the personal and political, this "essential story of our times" (The Scotsman) challenges our understanding of war, family and what it is to be a woman. 

"As close to perfection as is possible...a powerful, hallucinogenic experience." - What's On Stage

Megan Anderson on her solo mission in Grounded
Tuesday, October 21, 2014
 "Megan Anderson is a member of the resident company of the Everyman Theatre in Baltimore. Recently named 'Best Actress' by the Baltimore City Paper, she is starring in Everyman's latest production, the Baltimore premiere of Grounded by George Brant. It's a ripped-from-the-headlines affair about a former F-16 pilot who is now flying drones from a remote location in Nevada. It's also a tour-de-force for Megan Anderson, or any actor, for that matter, as she is the one and only actor in the play." More >

Everyman Theatre to give Baltimore premiere of a play ripped from the headlines
Wednesday, October 15, 2014
 The Baltimore Sun's Tim Smith recently spoke with three key players in the upcoming production of Grounded: George Brant (the playwright), Derek Goldman (the director) and Megan Anderson (the actor). "The provocative play by George Brant that receives its Baltimore at Everyman Theatre this week suggests a morphing of journalists' reports from Iraq or Afghanistan and an episode of Showtime's Homeland," he writes.  More >
