The Trip to Bountiful

By Horton Foote

Directed by Linda Garski

THE STORY: 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, and chafing under the watchful eye of her daughter-in-law, 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. Things do not go as she planned, but she ends up secure in the knowledge that the remainder of her existence will be enriched as a result of her last contact with Bountiful.
