The American Pilot
By David Greig
Directed by Matthew B. Zrebski

In this intense political allegory, a badly injured pilot drops out of the sky and into a village engaged in a guerrilla struggle to preserve their way of life. In The American Pilot, David Greig goes beyond ritual anti-Americanism to explore the relationship between one global superpower and the rest of the world. "Greig is one of the most intellectually stimulating dramatists around." - The Guardian
