The Trip to Bountiful
by Horton Foote
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
The Trip to Bountiful follows the journey of widow Carrie Watts. Feeling her presence is an imposition to her son Ludie and daughter-in-law Jessie Mae, Mrs. Watts flees the confines of their Houston apartment to make a final pilgrimage to her beloved home in Bountiful. Though her old home is a ruin and her friends long gone, Mrs. Watts gains strength and confidence from her journey.
This contemporary classic by Horton Foote recently enjoyed a Tony award winning Broadway revival and has been adapted for television and film. Actor Geraldine Page won the 1985 Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Carrie Watts.
