It is most difficult for a one person play to hold one's attention. Lauren English's performance never wavered. The play is engrossing and touches on many issues, both political and personal.

Quotes & Highlights

“The one-woman show, featuring Lauren English, focuses with spare and poetic language on an American pilot, who after finding herself pregnant, becomes a Predator drone operator. Instead of being stationed in the Gulf, she finds herself working from a trailer near Las Vegas—and instead of a years’ long deployment, she comes home to dinner with her husband and daughter every night.”  —San Francisco Magazine

About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse

The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
