HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (March 16, 2011) – The Theatre Department of Tidewater Community College presents Leaving Iowa, a rollicking journey chronicling the family vacation road trip.

The production gets a lot of mileage from typical family situations, and is a telling reminder of those wonderful, yet sometimes turbulent, family excursions of old.

The story chronicles the main character, Don Browning, a middle-aged writer, returning to his family home to dispose of his father’s ashes, only to find that the home is no longer there. The play, written by Tim Clue and Spike Manton, premiered in 2004.

Performance times are:

  • March 24-26 at 8 p.m. – Studio Theatre, Chesapeake Campus
  • March 27 at 2 p.m. – Studio Theatre, Chesapeake Campus
  • March 31-April 2 at 8 p.m. – TCC Roper Performing Arts Center, Norfolk

For directions, visit Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. For more information and to reserve tickets, please call 822-5219 or visit the TCC Theatre website,
