The play was so well done that there probably was not a dry eye in the theatre at the end. Each actor gave their all. The production was excellent and completely enjoyable. I hope to return.

More Information



Horton Foote’s tender and moving American classic about finding your way home. Aging Carrie Watts desperately wants to return to her hometown of Bountiful, Texas while she still has energy and spirit. Her son would rather bury the past. And her daughter-in-law can’t understand why she would want to leave the city. But despite their protests, Mrs. Watts yearns to plunge her hands into the dirt, to hear the birds sing, to breathe the country air — and to prove that she is more than the fragile old woman people see when they look at her!
