    Leaving Iowa at Barter Theatre

    Show details

    Locality:
    Washington
    110 West Main Street
    Abingdon, VA 24210

    By Tim Clue and Spike Manton The spark behind Leaving Iowa comes from being children of parents from the now dubbed “greatest generation.” The story is a toast to their idealism and character and a little roast of their undying dedication to the classic family road trip. More specifically, it is the story of Don Browning, a middle-aged writer, who returns home and 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. This father-and-son road trip shifts smoothly from the present to Don’s memories of the annual, torturous vacations of his childhood. Don’s existential journey leads him to reconcile his past and present at the center of the United States. Leaving Iowa is a postcard to anyone who has ever found him or herself driving alone on a road, revisiting fond memories of his or her youth.

    “Bring the Entire Family” Book, Music and Lyrics by MEREDITH WILLSON Story by MEREDITH WILLSON and FRANKLIN LACEY Never seen before on Barter Theatre’s stage, there is truly nothing more American than Meredith Willson’s classic Broadway musical, “The Music Man.” The fast-talking “Professor” Harold Hill convinces the parents of River City, Iowa, to buy band instruments and uniforms for their youngsters to save them from the corrupting influence of the local pool hall. In the process, he falls for the local librarian, Marian Paroo. Chaos ensues as Hill’s credentials are questioned, and the town is divided in their belief in this charismatic man. This story features some of musical theatre’s great characters including Mrs. Paroo, Winthrop, Hill’s sidekick Marcellus, Eulalie Mackecknie Shinn, and a host of others performed by Barter’s Resident Acting Company, who you know and love. Featuring songs from Willson’s timeless score including “Goodnight, My Someone,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Shipoopi,” “(Ya Got) Trouble,” and “Till There Was You.”

    “Winner of Barter’s 2015 Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights.” Recommended for mature audiences due to language and subject matter. By John Patrick Bray An homage to Western movies, He-Man action figures, and the playwright’s belief as a child that the Sesame Street Muppet Guy Smiley was in fact God, “Friendly’s Fire” shows us what lengths a man will go to preserve his friend’s sanity, and what lengths another will go to allow himself to remember his brother, who died in service to our country. In a cabin in Alaska, Guy Friendly, a Gulf War veteran and bee-herder, has just brought the wrong woman home for a one-night stand. His best friend Todd, a pawnshop owner dressed as an astronaut, finds Friendly in a fevered state. Trapped by the snow, Todd has little choice but enter Friendly’s fevered dream, to unravel the events of the night before – and the events of the Gulf War that led Friendly to becoming a shut-in.
