“LEAVING IOWA IS A COMIC TRIBUTE TO THE FAMILY VACATION.” – Detroit Free Press
“YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THE CHILD OF A SMALL-TOWN IOWA COUPLE LIVING IN THE MIDST OF HOG FARMS AND CORNFIELDS TO IDENTIFY WITH EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SIMULTANEOUSLY HILARIOUS AND TOUCHING ‘LEAVING IOWA.” – Chicago Sun Times.
“WHAT MAKES THIS PIECE UNIQUE IS THAT THE COMEDY, LIKE THAT OF MARK TWAIN, IS ROOTED IN PEOPLE’S IMPERFECTIONS.” – Kansas City Star
Called “a comedy with a surprisingly deep soul… simultaneously hilarious and touching,” Leaving Iowa portrays Don’s journey to return his father’s ashes to his childhood home, only to discover that Grandma’s house is now a grocery store. This father-and-son road trip shifts smoothly from the present to Don’s memories of the annual, torturous vacations of his childhood: the classic American summer vacation, which often meant being trapped in the back seat of a station wagon. Don’s memories bring to life the people of his past and present, weave a tale of reconciling idealism with reality, and ultimately show us what it means to love one’s family.
