Written by Horton Foote

Initially released as a television play in 1953, and later adapted into an Academy Award winning film in 1985, The Trip to Bountiful now makes its ACT debut on the Allen Arena stage!

Directed by the renowned Victor Pappas and featuring Seattle luminary Marianne Owen in the leading role, Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote’s The Trip to Bountiful is an unforgettable meditation on the idea of home and its power to sustain us. In 1953 Houston, elderly Carrie Watts dreams endlessly of returning to the home of her youth, but to do so she must first find a way to escape the supervision of an over-bearing daughter-in-law (Mary Kae Irvin) and an under-serving son (Paul Morgan Stetler). What follows is a touching and inspiring odyssey through the American landscape and the landscape of the heart as Carrie discovers the true magic of home that lives within us all.
