Saw Red Herring Theater's production of "Grounded" last night.
"Grounded" is a one-woman show touching on themes of family, career, and identity. Looming over all of that is the question of whether our technology will serve us or if it will be the other way around.
Carolyn Demanelis is mesmerizing in the role of the unnamed female fighter pilot first introduced to us speaking rapturously of flying her jet 'into the Blue.' Her plane is a machine she loves passionately even as she bombs targets back into the desert sands.
