Leaving Iowa

Leaving Iowa
A Comedy
by: Tim Clue & Spike Manton

Directed by: Keith Anderson
Produced by: Mary Anderson and Dorothy Courtney

Told in flashback, this hilarious sentimental comedy about a journalist who returns home to Winterset, Iowa to find a final resting place for his father’s ashes is a nostalgic ode to days gone by. As the journalist searches for the perfect spot to scatter the ashes, he relives the summer vacations he spent as boy trapped in the family station wagon en route to uninteresting historical sites with a well-meaning but naïve father. With a generous dollop of humor and a heart as big as the Midwest, Leaving Iowa shows us that the journey really is as important as the destination. Leaving Iowa is guaranteed to keep you laughing and remembering the childhood vacations you tried to forget.
