The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is pleased to present Flower of Iowa, a play based on the novel by Lance Ringel (author of In Love with the Arrow Collar Man). This special Veterans Day offering will be available to watch online beginning Wednesday, November 11 at 7:30 pm through the end of the month.


France, 1918: the final months of the First World War. Naïve 18-year-old American soldier Tommy Flowers juggles life in the trenches with an unfamiliar and growing intimacy with his new buddy, British soldier David Pearson. As the pair experience the grim realities of the Great War, they are baffled by their feelings, but committed to exploring them further.


Employing excerpts from Lance Ringel’s critically acclaimed novel Flower of Iowa, this unique presentation brings to life Tommy and David’s discovery of unexpected and forbidden love amidst the horrors of war.


Flower of Iowa premiered in 2018 at the New York New Works Theatre Festival. This staged reading will be performed by the original cast.


The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is proud to present this tribute to all of the young lives that have been forever altered by going to war.


Flower of Iowa will be available to watch on The Little Theatre's Facebook Page and YouTube channel. While it will be available at no cost, donations are welcomed.
