The Trip to Bountiful

May 7–16, 2010

by Horton Foote

Carrie Watts yearns to escape her son and his wife’s stifling Houston apartment for one last return to her roots in Bountiful, Texas. Running away from her present life to fulfill her dream of returning home again, she finally arrives with results that are both poignant and brilliantly life-affirming. Through laughter and tears, this Pulitzer prize-winning American playwright explores the inevitable need to assert independence and reawaken the memories of yesterday.
