Celebrate with NNPN
NNPN produces a number of events annually to garner support for our programs, and we invite you to join us for an event near you!
2013 Smith Prize Benefit
WASHINGTON, DC / Monday, November 12, 2012 / 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Join us for a staged reading of George Brant's 2012 Smith Prizewinning Play, Grounded, directed by Georgetown University's Derek Goldman, and starring Woolly Mammoth company member Kimberly Gilbert, at the Devine Studio Theatre on Georgetown University's campus. Tickets are $50 each, and support the 2013 Smith Prize. A dessert reception will precede the reading of the play.
Seamlessly blending the personal and the political, Grounded tells the story of a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Repurposed to flying remote-controlled drones in Afghanistan from an air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. A tour de force play for one actress, Grounded flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, targeting our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling.
Tickets are $50 each and are tax-deductible. To purchase tickets online with a credit card, click here to be taken to NNPN's PayPal page.
