Leaving Iowa

"Leaving Iowa" 

A Comedy About Family Vacations

By Tim Clue and Spike Manton

We are truly excited to present this show because it provides a diversity of characterization for each of the actors/actresses included. “Leaving Iowa” is the perfect family show for people of all ages, and the story line is sure to hit home with you and make you laugh!

Leaving Iowa is a postcard to anyone who has ever found themselves driving along on a road revisiting fond memories of their youth. A middle aged, Boston news columnist, Don Browning, returns home for a christening. His mother finds his father’s long-missing ashes, and the guilt- laden Don, who had selfishly missed his father’s funeral three years earlier, sets out on a road trip to find a proper burial place for his father’s ashes. As he travels he recalls in flashbacks, the annual zany and tedious vacations of Don’s youth. Ultimately he re-discovers his love for his father. The characters in this show are ones that make up a four person family, and two additional characters who make up all of the other characters that they meet along their family trips.  

This show will be performed as a dinner theater-style show at The Onion Grille in Hastings. Dinner will begin an hour and a half prior to the show.

This show is $47 with no added taxes and fees for Friday and Saturday dinner shows, and $30 with no added taxes and fees for Sunday lunch shows. 

We do have a handicap accessible option for the show on January 28th @ 2:00 pm. Please call 651-300-9567 to reserve your tickets.
