Peace Through Corn

*Major Grant*

Creating Great Places received a grant from Humanities Iowa that will allow the original play “Peace Through Corn” to be brought to Iowa audiences across the state.

Written by Iowa playwright Cynthia Mercati, “Peace through Corn” brings alive the amazing, unprecedented relationship of Iowa farmer Roswell Garst and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. During a fearful time when our two nations were poised at the brink of nuclear disaster, Garst and Khrushchev forged a unique human bond based on their mutual fascination with agricultural progress and their shared love of a good laugh and a ferocious debate.
