"The Trip to Bountiful" is Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Horton Foote's bittersweet story of Carrie Watts who feels a pull to return to her ancestral roots as she advances in age. Carrie escapes the cramped apartment where she lives with her protective son, Ludie, and her domineering daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, to return to her beloved hometown, Bountiful, Texas. On Carrie's trip to Bountiful, she touches the heart of every person she meets.

Carrie Watts' journey was made famous with Geraldine Page's Oscar winning performance in the 1985 film.

Kendra Jones directs the intimate cast which includes Reba Hervas, Mike Dille, Jessica Means, Grace Grooms, Steve Higgins, and Michael Gregory.
