Closing out Lamplighter's "A Place to Belong" season, the comedic play Leaving Iowa tells the story of a family packing their bags and hitting the open road on a vacation undermined by haphazard hilarity. With the same enthusiasm he used to pilot the theater’s productions of My Fair Lady, Pride and Prejudice, and Guys and Dolls, seasoned director Greg Wilson leads the cast as they act out the trials and tribulations of spending quality time with the family. Relatable, sentimental moments abound while the kids vie for control of the back seat, the dad points out uninteresting landmarks, and the mother attempts to keep the peace and rouse everyone's spirits.

Performed by a wily band of funnypeople, Bye Bye Liver: The Nashville Drinking Play is an interactive sketch-comedy show that celebrates the consumption of adult beverages.

All shows are for those 21 and older, in accordance with the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
