The Trip to Bountiful

Trapped in a cramped Houston apartment with her spineless son and domineering daughter-in-law, the elderly Carrie Watts pines for her beloved hometown of Bountiful, Texas. After being denied a begged-for trip to see Bountiful once more before she dies, Carrie makes a break for it, wending her own way toward the small town on her own power. But the present day can never match up with sepia-toned memories, and Carrie is left to observe the derelict remains of her childhood. Written by Texas native Horton Foote (who adapted To Kill A Mockingbird for the silver screen), The Trip To Bountiful was later made into a movie that won Geraldine Page the 1985 Oscar for Best Actress, although it was filmed in Dallas despite its Houston setting. The Classic Theatre’s production is directed by John O’Neill and stars Magda Porter, Jessie Mae and Steven Starr.
