ESCAPING OHIO, which will have its world premiere on October 22, 2023, is a charming story about home, dreams, and friendship. The crossroads of Sam and JJ's life are set against the backdrop of Akron, Ohio. While Sam longs to travel outside of their little village, JJ is happy to stay true to his origins. When a local college scholarship is offered, Sam feels the pressure to perform. Nevertheless, she is drawn by her dreams to a sunny California writing fellowship. As she is ready to go, JJ shows her the wonders of Ohio and challenges her assumptions. Sam learns through love, humor, and the unanticipated charm of their community that sometimes the most amazing experiences can be discovered in the most mundane locations. This lighthearted drama masterfully conveys the spirit of camaraderie, decision-making, and the homes we call our own.
