Originally produced in Minnesota at The Old Log Theatre, Leaving Iowa is a warm and nostalgic comedy about a baby boomer searching for the perfect spot to scatter his father's ashes, reliving boyhood summer vacations he spent trapped in the family station wagon headed to uninteresting sites with his sister, mother and determined, well-meaning father.

Nominated for Best New Play by the American Theatre Critics Association, Leaving Iowa is guaranteed to keep audience members laughing and remembering the childhood vacations they try to forget.

Leaving Iowa, by Tim Clue and Spike Manton, is directed by Terry Lynn Carlson and produced by New Plays Inc.
