Actress Kerry Cahill (Daddy’s Home, Terminator Genisys, Hours) has been selected to play in the one-woman show “Grounded” that will run November 2-20, 2016 at Loyola University-Lower Depths Theatre. Award-winning playwright, George Brandt, has been given worldwide recognition for his work. Cahill said,” I am deeply honored that I have been selected for such a challenging role and I am looking forward to working with the director, Larissa Lury.”
Cahill is not the first celebrity to play this part. Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway garnered plenty of praise when she played this role last year in New York at the Public Theater. Although the play has been successful in other cities, Cahill will be launching the regional premiere of Grounded at the Lower Depths Theatre. “I feel a little bit nostalgic, says Cahill, “I am Loyola University alumna and for the first time, I am performing professionally on the same stage that I learned on as a freshman in college. It feels surreal to say the least.”
Grounded is a full-length drama about a fighter pilot who is sidelined due to an unexpected pregnancy. She is then reassigned to operate military drones from a trailer outside of Las Vegas. She pursues terrorists during the day and then rejoins her family at night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the dessert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.
Prior to the launch of Grounded, Cahill will be acting along side Matthew McConaughey in the Free State of Jones coming out in theaters June 24th. Kerry Cahill is an award-winning actress grew up in a military family in rural towns of Montana, Oregon and Texas. She studied drama at Loyola University in New Orleans, the British American Drama Academy Oxford and Queen’s University Belfast. Cahill’s film break came under the director Werner Herzog in Bad Lieutenant. Today, she has been cast in blockbusters such as Free State of Jones, Daddy's Home, NCIS: New Orleans, and Terminator Genisys.
