Take A Road Trip With Lamb’s ‘Leaving Iowa’
aa Lamb’s Players Theatre is celebrating the last days of summer with Leaving Iowa by Tim Clue and Spike Manton. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Deborah Gilmour Smyth, this hilarious and touching comedy will make its San Diego debut at Lamb’s Players Theatre Aug. 7 – Sept. 20.
The Brownings are on vacation. Mom and Dad are in the front seat, brother and sister are tolerating each other in the back, and Dad is convinced they’re not lost. Sound familiar? Flash forward 40 years: Don Browning is a newspaper columnist on his own road trip to honor his Dad’s memory, when hilarious flashbacks of childhood vacations come rushing back as fast as the Midwestern “landmarks” that whiz by outside his car windows.
For anyone who’s ever spent hours putting up with parents and siblings in the back seat of a car, or been forced to pose for one more picture, Leaving Iowa will take you back to days when seat belts were optional, “stupid” was a bad word, and Dad never stopped at any of the cool places – a time when a back seat car window was alternately a prison – and the ultimate moving picture show.
