Leaving Iowa opens at SCT

Leaving Iowa opens this weekend at Salem Community Theatre. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. June 14,15, 21 and 22, and 2 p.m. June 16 and 23. The critically-acclaimed play “Leaving Iowa,” by Tim Clue and Spike Manton, is a hilarious, family-friendly comedy that is a toast to the idealism and character of parents from the “greatest generation,” and a little roast of their dedication to the family road trip. It was nominated Best New Play in the Country by the Detroit Free Press and one of SoCal Theater’s 10 Most Memorable Moments of the year after its run at the Laguna Playhouse, stating the play included “the most frighteningly realistic depiction of a family summer road trip” the reviewer had ever seen.
