ASU Summer Dinner Theatre - "Leaving Iowa"

A toast to the idealism and character of the "greatest generation" and a littleroast of their undying dedication to the classic family road trip, Leaving Iowa is the story of Don Browning, a middle-aged writer, who decides to finally take his father's ashes to his childhood home, as requested. But when Don discovers Grandma's house is now a grocery store, he begins traveling across Iowa searching for a proper resting place for his father.
