All are invited to Covenant High School’s annual drama production! The play is called Leaving Iowa: The Comedy about Family Vacations, by Tim Clue and Spike Manton. Leaving Iowa follows the story of Don Browning, a middle-aged writer, who sets out on a road trip in a last-ditch effort to honor his father’s dying wish: to bury his ashes in his childhood home. But when Don discovers that Grandma’s house is now a grocery store, he embarks on a journey across the U.S. searching for the proper resting place for his father.
The play will take place on March 17 and 18 at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Adults’ tickets are $4, students are $2, and children 12 and under are free.
Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company, Inc., of Woodstock, Illinois. Leaving Iowa premiered at the Purple Rose Theatre Company on January 22, 2004, in Chelsea, Michigan, directed by Anthony Caselli.
