The comedic play Leaving Iowa evokes memories of summer vacations while underlining the importance of family. Middle-aged writer Don Browning decides the time has come to return his father's ashes to his childhood home in Iowa—but when he gets there, he discovers that Grandma's house has become a grocery store and his old stomping grounds are now riddled with giant bootprints. As the familiar scenes remind Don of his own youthful road trips, the scene shifts from the present to the past to show humorous vignettes from his childhood.
The Christmas Foundling
It's Christmas Eve, 1852, and two curmudgeonly miners in the California Sierras are unexpectedly saddled with an orphaned baby boy. As the years pass, the unconventional family grows closer with the little boy at the center. But when the child reaches ten years old, a figure appears from his past—an aunt from Boston, who offers him a new life in the city. The miners must decide what's best for their Christmas Foundling: an idyllic existence in the mountains, or a potentially successful future out east. While the festive story warms hearts, the sounds of carols and folk music snuggles ears.
