- Baltimore Sun
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.
