Horton Foote’s classic play The Trip to Bountiful tells the story of widow Carrie Watts, who hopes to escape her Houston apartment to return to her girlhood home in Bountiful.
Originally a 1953 teleplay featuring Lillian Gish, this work moved to Broadway, and has been produced regularly ever since. Foote’s 1985 film adaptation earned an Academy Award for Geraldine Page. The current text, which Foote revised in 2005, featured Lois Smith in the lead role. This streamlined version opened at New York’s Signature Theatre and then traveled to Hartford Stage and the Goodman Theater in Chicago.
