Tickets available for ‘Leaving Iowa’ in Salem
SALEM–Tickets are now on sale for “Leaving Iowa” at Salem Community Theatre. Show dates are June 14 to the 23. Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2 p.m.
Directed by Chris Fidram, 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.
For tickets call 330-332-9688 Ext. 3 or go to www.salemcommunitytheatre.org.
