Additional Info

A spy plane crash-lands in a remote valley in a distant country. The local villagers take in the wounded pilot and argue his fate. The American Pilot explores the way the world sees America and the way America sees the world. In this concise 90-minute play performed without an intermission, playwright David Greig goes beyond specific political situations to deal with the universal emotions brought out during war regardless of time or place. The American Pilot premièred with the Royal Shakespeare Company at The Other Place, Stratford in April 2005.
