Preview April 20, 2019 David Kiley

BRIGHTON – Livingston County’s newest professional theatre, A Wilde Theatre, presents their second production Leaving Iowa by Tim Clue and Spike Manton.

Newspaper columnist, Don Browning, is searching for the perfect spot to scatter his dad’s ashes years after his death. He sets out on a solo journey across the Midwest and through some of the zany and emotional family road trips in a station wagon he took with his Dad, Mom, and sister. Through the long stretches of cornfields, conflicts with siblings, and the tourist traps that litter his memories, he rediscovers his love and admiration for his Dad.

Directed by Lynn Wilde, Leaving Iowa features Tony Amato, Dana Blaszkowski, Angela Dill, Sean Heslip, Katy Kujala Cronin and Nick Szczerba.
