Edge-of-your-seat war story
You are the blue.
You are alone in the vastness and you are the blue.
Flying fast and free as one of the Air Force’s finest, The Pilot (Alison van Reeken) is grounded when she falls pregnant.
After three years raising her child she is desperate to return to the blue, but the rules of the game have changed. Drones are the new top gun. That means 12-hour shifts hunting terrorists by day then driving home to be a wife and mother by night.
Returning after a smash-hit, sell-out season at The Blue Room Theatre in 2016, this one woman tour-de-force is gripping and compulsive, challenging our assumptions about modern warfare, family and how we live and fight in an increasingly virtual world.
“Alison van Reeken is extraordinary… her performance is uncompromising, technically flawless and emotionally convincing. Don’t miss it.” 4.5 stars, The West Australian
