THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL
by Horton Foote
Directed by Rick Synder
This is the poignant story of Mrs. Watts, an aging widow living with her son and daughter-in-law in a three-room flat in Houston, Texas. Fearing that her presence may be an imposition on others, Mrs. Watts imagines that if she can get away and return to her old home in the town of Bountiful, she is sure to regain her strength, dignity and peace of mind. She proceeds to Bountiful and makes a lonely pilgrimage to the scene of her old home. The results are both brilliantly life-affirming and heartbreaking in one of legendary playwright Horton Foote’s most beloved works. Travel with her in this delicately beautiful play by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, whose work has enriched and mesmerized its audiences.
